It seems like the process has taken forever, but I am finally putting the finishing touches on two new patterns, which I hope to release in April.
One pattern is for a foundation-paper-pieced map of Australia. It is a fun little project and a great way to use up tiny scraps. I have been trying to write up the instructions for this block since late 2016, when I made my first version for a mini swap.
Following another idea, also dating from late 2016, I converted my aeroplane blocks – made for Little Island Quilting’s Soy Amado project in partnership with Wendy’s Quilts and More – into a baby quilt.
Both ideas have been bubbling about in my head for ages, but finding the time to get them through all the stages of sewing, writing, drawing diagrams, checking and testing has been problematic.
So, watch this space. I am nearly there!
