Yesterday I also received an ebay auction win... namely this:
This is actually the very first time I've ever been up close and personal with a jelly roll before. I'm not a quilter, as much as I love them, but I've found a BOM which has captured me and so I'm going to give it a try. Its here, Little Miss Shabby - Adventures in Quilting and wow the whole website is bursting with gorgeous colours, stunning quilts and pretty cushion - it makes me want to try them all!!!! The quilt I'm going to try my hand at though is Birdie Stitches, the little birdies just look adorable. I've decided to use Lila Tuellers Eden by Moda (as you can see) and so have been wondering what to use as the backing. At first I was going to use the Dahlias, then I thought about using Paradise but since having got the jelly roll, I'm absolutely loving the dots. If only there was some way of making a removable backing then I'd make a backing in all the different varieties LOL. I'm so looking forward to spending a little time each day embroidering my Birdie Stitches quilt.
