Keep it secret, keep it safe.

I've been pretty quiet around here in the last week or so, but not for lack of sewing. I've been working on a secret project for the last few weeks using this wee pile :o)


It's now finally coming together, and I'm at that stage of trying to figure out how to quilt it, and what to name it (is it just me, or is that the hardest part of making quilts?) You get a sneak peek for now - it's killing me not being able to show you more. I really, really love how it's coming together :o)


I'll be pretty quiet for the next few weeks while I'm finishing this baby up (by baby I mean around 70"x 90", so baby probably isn't the best description ;o) ).

I also wanted to mention that I'll be participating in the Kate Spain Blog hop hosted by Alyce (check out all the details here) next month.

Hope everyone is having a great week!

xx Jess

The sneak peek looks really cool. Looking forward to the big reveal. Oh, and naming a quilt isn't the hardest part for me because I skip that part altogether. haha

Love all those fabrics together and the sneaky peak. I am sure it is going to be fabulous finished as your stuff always is.

The sneek peek looks wonderful! My quilts are like pedigree animals - they have a 'real' name, like 'Elephants and butterflies' and a dull name I always end up calling them like 'the tradewinds quilt'. I wonder why I spend time thinking of names at all !

How to quilt it - definitely the hardest decision in the quilt-making process for me. usually.

Freaking love you colours! I'm a big fan of a snail's trail so I'm looking forward to this reveal… :-)
