However, I also made this country version from a rectangle of linen together with odds-and-ends from my scrap box. I seem to return to red and green, gingham and checks, time-and-time again and I never seem to tire of them.
I am looking forward to using some of my favourite country fabrics in the Zakka 2.0 sew along. The postie has finally delivered my book so I am all ready. Last year's Zakka sew along was so much fun and I have missed it. Zakka 2.0 looks to include plenty of patterns and projects to keep us busy - many of which will make nice Christmas presents.

Can't wait until then? Then how about the Sew Can She Crazy Quilt Block sew along – which looks so much fun. Included is a great little tutorial on making a crazy block by the Sewing Loft - you quilt it as you go along - what a good idea.
This is a very relaxed sew along running from 20th April through to 18th May so no pressure - plus there are some great prizes for the finished projects. I don't know about you but I am drowning in fabric scraps ranging in size from 1” square to 4” square plus pieces of left-over binding strips and I have a great little project in mind.
Of course, if these two are not to your liking you could always whip up a journal cover in this month's Across the Pond Sew Along - now that really is one very, very relaxed group!
Sew until next time ........
