A Quick Update

For those of you that love sewing paraphernalia especially pincushions, Sandy is hosting a pincushion swap. You have until the 10th May to sign up. I am sure it will be loads of fun. I have a button on my side bar that will take you to Sandy's page and you can learn all about it.
Janet has also shown her collection of pincushions so there is a wealth of inspiration there along with a tutorial or so. Take a look you won't be disappointed.

A few girls that read my blog have asked me about the curved hexagon blocks that I am sewing for my 'French Spring' quilt.
The pattern can be found inside this book.
here is an example of one sewn up.

this is what the templates look like.
I have had this book for sometime but I am sure it would be still available.
There are some really great blocks inside, if you want a further look leave me a comment and let me know.

Until next time Happy Sewing

Thanks for sharing the information Jean, are there many quilts in the book and are they mainly hand pieced?
