a new project....

My lovely parcel of fabrics arrived today. Le petite ecole is just a gorgeous fabric range. I was lucky to get this as it was a bargain.
It will join my stash of Rural Jardin

And what will they become eventually.....
this...... hopefully. It will be a long term project but I am looking forward to making a start next year.
If you pop over to this blog called Buddy and me Sue-Anne  has recently finished one of these quilts. Her quilt progress pics inspired me to ask her where the pattern was from- and of course the hexies were a big drawcard. This pattern is from Stoneleigh Patchwork based on an antique quilt from Ayers House in South Australia.
I hope I haven't bitten off more than I can chew! I am happy to have it as a long term project.

Here is a pic for those that asked about the elephant label I made. I was sure I had showed it before but couldn't find where, so I thought I would post another photo.
It will go on this quilt..
Now to make a list of ufo's, wisp's and bom's.....Just to keep me on track.
Happy days!
cheers

Love the fabric and the future plans. That looks good.
The snowball quilt with the elephants looks stunning. What a wonderful idea.

Working with such beautiful fabrics and that gorgeous pattern - a win win situation as far as I can see.
Sue-Anne did a wonderful job on hers and I am looking forward to seeing yours grow from a pile of fabrics to a beautiful quilt. Your elephants are too cute.
