Wow - what a great response to our Stitch-a-long

How great has it been seeing everyone's keen responses to doing this stitch-a-long..
  Seems quite a few of us have been in the same boat with always wanting to do this quilt but alas, life gets in the way (or should I say - other projects)..  I have loved seeing the photo's of fabrics and the started stitcheries.  This is going to be sooooo cool - I can't wait to see how they look when finished...
I have decided to do mine in the new tilda range (I confess - this is in my stash) and with variegated thread.  I don't usually use bright fabrics but lately have been pushing my boundaries with trying new colour ranges and I definitely am one of those oddballs that don't like using variegated thread.  I find when I use this type of thread, that all I want to do is chop it up into bundles of dark, medium and light colours.  This, of course, defeats the purpose of having a variegated  oh well,  lets see how I go..
Here are my fabrics..
On Tuesday I completed the fourth of my stitcheries (no order, just which ever I pick up next)..
Keep up the good work girls - they are all going to look great...
