Block 5 Free Bom; Indulge in ... bubbles!!

This is a girl whom I envy, not only luxuriating in a hot bubbly bath (I don't have a bath at home) but also indulging in a glass of champers (bubbles in a glass do funny things to me) whilst doing so!!
It rather takes me back to my life pre - hubby and Jack Russell where I could spend hours (literally) soaking in a hot bath, glass of wine in hand, candles and soft music playing and had absolutely no worries. I wouldn't swap the life I have now, but how I long for just the occasional evening of nothing to do but indulge myself!!
The free BOM for this month is available here.

Success!! ....

I think the 'Quilt as you Go' technique is absolutely fabulous and I have managed to not only whip up this little beauty in no time but have also managed to enjoy every minute of it.

The other good thing about it is that I have used up fabric amongst my stash including the backing and bac-ground fabric as well as using up my scraps of wadding.
I'm going to be teaching this technique as a 10 week course (for beginners) from September. Although there are 9 blocks in this little quilt I'm going to leave it unfinished so that I can add more blocks as part of my demonstration. I have plans to make this into a super-large quilt to keep.

I'm quite in love with it!!

Quilting as I go ...

I am busy designing a quilt using the Quilt-as-you-go method - incorporating simple applique and hand stitching. I love how simple shapes, configured in different ways can produce something simple but beautiful. Each block has been quilted and then I shall join them together.

Hopefully by the end of the week there should be a beautiful quilt.
