Another new QAL

post signatureIt's an exciting but stressful week here and it's only Monday !!!!. This is my last week of being 39 and we're off to Disneyland Paris on Friday for the weekend :) lots of nice treats planned but in the meantime we have a cat with a poorly foot off to the vets this afternoon, a dog that's run into something and jarred his foot.  Two nights of school meetings, a boy going off to High school tomorrow to *try for the day* and has to be on the bus for 7.50am and lots of other appointments to fit in, including the hairdressers. Thank the lord for that, I look like the Wella gorilla.

Anyway, the Quilt a long starts on Monday, Here's the  Details but it's a challenging quilt for me.  I calculated about 540+ 1.5" squares, hand piecing, machine piecing, curves, embroidery, EPP but what a gorgeous quilt.

I'm thinking mine is going to be more wintery than springy, so some reds, whites, aquas and a mixture of grey skies and whites.  It uses lots of low volume scraps and is generally a great scrap buster.  The pieces are really small.

Over the weekend I decided to start on the hexagon portion as that usually takes me forever, they are 1/2" sided hexis and there are 30 of them.  I was really surprised that after glue basting in the afternoon I managed to get them sewn up while watching Sunday night TV.

Next I'm going to prep the three embroideries, so I can fit some stitching in during appointments and on the long drive to Paris :)
