Pentagons and diamonds...

I would almost say: ... are a girl's best friend!
It is only that I have just started but I know I am hooked already! Before I can continue I have to study Portuguese, clean the bathroom, walk the dogs, get some groceries, appointment with the dentist, sort out the packing list for the movers in random order... ahhhh!!!
I so much more prefer to go through my stash, cut out pieces of fabrics and make a heap of pentagons to play with.  The colours of the Kaffe Fassett and Amy Butler fabrics are just so appealing!
Sigh... ok,ok, I will do something from my to-do-list first and then I can go ahead and play for a while!

 Over the weekend I finished the applique to a top for a charity quilt.
All hexagon flowers and pentagon fishes and butterflies were made by a few ladies from the quilt bee at The Stitch Cottage. The top will be used for a so called Dream quilt. In total we made 2 tops for this special project.

Happy quilting! Hilde

  2. Inderdaad verslavend! Je weet wat ze zeggen, no work and all play...

  3. Hilde, your charity quilt is beautiful! And your new project with the pentagons and diamonds looks intriguing. Can't wait to see what you will do with them. I hope your dentist visit went OK: incidentally that's what I did too this afternoon ;). Cheers Vreni
