July Cherish Do Good Stitches

I have to say I am really enjoying my decision to join Do good stitches. I am sew (lol) addicted to sewing, Well I was challenged this month as I have never done curves or drunkards path. So after a you tube demo. I am really happy with how they turned out.
Yah so off in the mail they go.



The brief was this pattern in either warm or cool colours, Obviously I chose cool.
I loved this block not quite enough to make a quilt at this stage. 

But It did inspire me to make an extra block each month 
from my Do good Stitches briefs to make my very own Cherish quilt. 

So another excuse to go to the fabric store..


These are the fabrics I have chose to do that quilt, 
just to tell you these beautiful fabrics were only 5.95/ metre at East Coast Fabrics
Springwood on sale they are now all 7.95. 

I have replicated 2 blocks so far. It will be an interesting quilt. (scrappy block)


My June Hexagon inspired block & Julys block.
I really want to do my Bee block again so its on there its really going to be a memory quilt precious just to me...   

I sew just about every day and I have so many ideas. I want to make, create or explore. My other massive purchase was EQ. Yah I have been playing for hours.
I'm sure you will see some interesting quilt posts soon.

I love my 1/2 day fridays I went to the fabric shop. I got more for my stash. 

Kona Blue Bell & Dusty Blue 5.95/M,
Timeless treasures Super Heros & Michael Miller both specials 3.95/m
this shop is not helping my addiction. !!




oh oops I joined a stash buster group, now I have to calculate aagghhhhh.  I think I may need more details how that works.....
