Late posting!

Whoops, it has just slipped past midnight, so it's not Friday anymore - but let's just pretend it is and that I've managed to get my post in on time.

I'll just make it a quick one: I've cut out a couple of Morrell quilt blocks for hand piecing - so I've made a start on a new project!

The first block ready for hand piecing, and the second ready for English paper piecing, and then applique to a background. 

I've made my decision that I'll be using a variety of background fabrics, so I may yet add some more to the selection I shared last week. The Morrell quilt will be a slow work in progress while I hand quilt Lily Rosenberry, and it will be fun to have some options when I feel like working on some stitching.

That's it for this week - I know there is a strong chance I may not be able to post next week as I have a busy one lined up, but I'll do my best! Chatter soon lovely friends xox

I have forgotten to look and see if I have the Morrell pattern as I was going to - Di Ford right? it might be in one of the books I have.
if you have an active life it can be hard to include in quilting and blogging but I love to see what you are working on when you do pop up in my Feedly reader

I love your colour choices! Is this pattern available in a book somewhere? I bought the photocopied pattern from Threadbare a lot of years ago. I had to wait 3 months for it because Di had broken. There are a lot of hand drawn pages.

Gorgeous blocks. Look forward to following along with your progress

You are starting 2023 with a BANG. Love it. Can't wait to see future progress.
Enjoy your week.
