Collecting fabric for Quilt-along and what else I'm working on...

Okay, I've decided to use purple as my colour for the Quilt-along, on a white background.
This is all the scraps and some big pieces that I have found in my collection. Considering that purple is my favourite colour I thought there would have been more. Anyhow, we will see how we go!

I am also working on a Mariners Compass Quilt. This is in a class. My colours are completely different to the original, which has been published in a magazine. The bulk of the foundation piecing has been done, now there is loads of needleturn applique to do. But I am nearly 1/4 of the way through it!

Don't Look Now Quilt-along

Although I've been thinking about doing this blogging thing for a while now, I've finally bitten the bullet.
I am taking part in a quilt-along being run by Kellie at Don't Look Now. It is a Joseph's Coat or Orange Peel Quilt. All hand applique and sounding very time consuming.
So check in every now and then as I will post pictures as I progress.
