Fun with fabrics

This was the sun coming up on Saturday morning, and my granddaughter Esmae and I walked down the driveway to check the letterbox.

A book that I had sent away for months ago, had finally arrived and we raced back to put the kettle on and peruse the pages of this beautiful book.
Jane Brocket is the author and I love reading her writings here and her other two books.
Her photos never fail to surprise and delight me, and this book has done the same.

I was so inspired by the pictures and the fact that Jane's quilts are very simply and quickly put together, that I decided to play around with my Kaffe Fassett fabrics and see what happened.

All other plans were shelved the rest of the day as Esmae and I got busy playing with different fabric combinations...so much fun was had, and finally lots of little piles of 4 1/2 " squares were laid out carefully on the spare bed.

Today I have been sewing, and sewing....
I will show you very soon.
