Work in Progress

Its been five whole weeks since I last blogged, I should have finished something in all that time, don't you think but I have been busy decorating with just a little bit of sewing squeezed in.

Spot the naughty block
This is my New York beauty quilt and you might be wondering why it has so many blank areas well they are ready for something free motioned, a couple of feathers maybe, a bit of pebbling and perhaps a little bit of cross hatching, yes I'm aiming high on this one!

Ummm the only problem is I'm pants at drawing and I can't mark the quilt too much because the fabrics aren't prewashed! 

At the moment I am brimming with positivity, pop back to see if it will all end in tears Lol.
This post is linking up with the following parties.

Oh that is going to be amazing. I've been wanting to do a whole cloth quilt, but I LOVE this and just may go with something like this instead. Can't wait to see what you do with this one.
