Hyacinth quilts. I have already picked the project I want to make but will have to wait until after Christmas to start. tutorial by Leigh at leedle deedle quilts. I love it and want to make a larger version using the Australian fabrics and batiks again. Maybe with bigger squares though!

A Quilting Life. She is designing projects using 2 1/2 inch squares. I don't have any mini charm squares but have lots of charm packs and scraps to use. I started straight away with some Kaffe charm squares but need white for the background. I hope to get some on the weekends and finish it.

charming chevrons quilts from Christa Quilts blog for ages but was not sure about getting all those half square triangles to line up enough that I would be happy with the result. I sometimes find my ability does not meet my expectations. Then I saw this runner on Saltwater Quilts and decided to try my chevrons in a runner first. I used charm squares which were bigger than the pattern by Candace and I love how it looks. Charming chevrons will have to wait till the new year but I already have my charm squares picked out

Hugs and Kisses from the park by Melissa Corry from Happy Quilting found at Moda Bakeshop. I would like to make it bigger but I did not have enough background and I used a black batik that I cannot get the exact colour again. It is 42 inches by 52 inches, not quite big enough for an adult. The batiks I used were called Pink Lemonade I think! A fat quarter bundle from the fat quarter shop purchased a while ago.
