A New Start

At last I saw I picture of a quilt that made me want to raid my stash and get cracking. 
Pink and brown is the theme and will now be posting progress on this one. 

A nice pile progressing

This is how I will set them, just realised my pink show is peeking out at the bottom of photo. 

When Linda from Quilts in the Barn was here last month amongst other things she gave me this lovely
old quilt block. A different pink and brown to what I'm making but really like this combo. 

I've been out and about and meet Mary Koval and Bonnie Hunter at the Festival of Quilts. 
I loved this quilt which was on the French Patchwork Association stand. They had some fabulous quilts that I really love. 

Really great scrappy quilt. 

Hope you like the eye candy
