Some Kind of Wonderful

I had a free morning here in Swanage today. So after a lovely breakfast, I decided that I needed to catch up on my Stitch along project called Some Kind of Wonderful.

I cut out all the fabric for the applique main blocks, strips for the sashing and squares for the pieced blocks. I do need to get my act together as this Stitch a Along is due to be completed in October this year!! Now the rain has stopped, Mr D and I are going to visit a Castle.

On the way to Swanage for the weekend, I managed to persuade Mr D to stop for coffee in Dorchester.
It is amazing how my little car Ruby manages to stop outside a quilt shop called Pauline's Patchwork. Mr D had his coffee in the car whist I went in to say hello. I first visited Pauline's shop over twenty one years ago when it was located in The Brewer's Quay in Weymouth on the ground floor.   It would be rude not to purchase a fat quarter or two.  I only came away with six FQ and three half metres.

I am going to make yet another bag with this new fabric.  So come back later as see the new project.

Stitch-A-Long 2012

Some Kind of Wonder - My Favourite Things by Anni Downs is the next project for the Stitch-A-Long.  Check out the blog by clicking on the link.  The girls are producing some beautiful work.
The photo show the fabrics I am using in my quilt.  As usual for me, I am on catch up mode!  We started this project way back in October 2011. Some times life has a habit of getting in the way of my stitching.  I will post next week some of my blocks and show you the progress I am making with is project.   
See you soon, Deborah
