rectangles and squares

This weekend the rotary cutter got a bit of a workout. I started on the May dolly quilt package which is made up a lot of small squares and rectangles. These packages come with fabrics chosen for you already which is great as I find choosing fabrics difficult and you have a chance to play around with colours and fabrics that you normally wouldn't choose.


I've also been meaning to make a little lap quilt for home to keep us warm (it's getting so cold!) and decided to try Amy Butler's brick path quilt pattern.


Once again the rotary cutter was put to good use.....144 rectangles have been cut, only 54 to go!
