...because of this...!
Woohoo, I adored Jen Kingwells Circle Game quilt when it was released as a Block of the Month at Amitie a couple of years ago, but because I hadn't yet started my Green Tea and Sweet Beans BOM that I had purchased the year before, I told myself I wasn't allowed to get it. But now Jen has released these amazingly gorgeous patterns in booklet form, and I am so thrilled to have it in my collection!! Beautifully photographed by Lucy (Amitie Girl), the instructions are very well written and wonderfully presented.
It is so lovely to be able to own Green Tea and Sweet Beans and also The Circle Game patterns in these beautiful booklets.
I have even made a start (finally) on my GT&SB blocks. I hadn't started these because I wanted to hand piece them all, which I hadn't learnt how to do until recently! Now I am addicted to hand piecing and I can get going on these beautiful blocks...(click on the pic to see closer!)
My stitches are slowly getting smaller (a way to go yet!), I love how the back looks, especially after a good press!
Also arriving in the mail (great mail day) from Amitie, was the next offering in the stash builders club! Aren't these divine? I think some of these will have to go into my Circle Game blocks. Joining a stash club like this is a great way to get many different fabrics, without having to buy larger amounts. Fabulous!
Anyone else making either of these quilts? Send me a link to yours if you want, I would love to see! xo
