 A glimpse of some pretty patches I am working on....all will be revealed shortly hopefully within the next week or two.  Amongst these patches is an old shirt of mine, a childs dress that I cut up, another shirt ,a bit of Tilda and some little scraps given to me by an old aunt of my husbands'.
Questo è un piccolo assagio di un lavoro che voglio portare al termine questa settimana....spero.Fra i piccoli patch c'è un vestito di una bambina ,un paio di camicie mie, qualche pezzetto di Tilda e pezzetti di stoffa recuperato da una Zia di mio marito.
This is how I pieced the colours together like a puzzle.
I pezzi sono pronto da cucire insieme....

 A little book found on Amazon ...very cheap...nice ideas for making little quilts.Contains all the pattern pieces.

Un piccolo libro comprato su Amazon....buon prezzo....contiene tutto le sagome per realizare i piccoli quilts.

Another easy to follow book

  2. Hi - I nominated your great blog for a 'versatile blogger award'. Please pop over and visit, for details. Love, Chris

  3. Hi Alison! Just visiting your blog for the first time. Love your hexagons and looking forward to seeing what they will become. I have a hexie UFO that needs some attention. Every time I see someone working on hexagons, I want to get it out but I have sooo many UFOs. :-) Great new books that will inspire many new quilt projects I think.
