Raindrops on roses...

....and whiskers on kittens! (Don't you love that song!)

After I started quilting, and before I prioritised quilting, I did a bit of scrapbooking. My sister still does, she makes beautiful cards for us for birthdays and Christmas and Easter. They're exquisite. Anyway, I digress! When I was a keen scrapbooker probably my favourite company was one called Basic Grey. Imagine how thrilled I was when I discovered that Moda (creators of all wonderful pre-cuts!) had teamed with Basic Grey to make FABRIC!!! Sadly, I discovered this after they had already released two of my favourite paper lines as fabric. With the help of a LOT of internet searching, I did manage to pick up some Urban Couture and some Sultry, and they are definitely a few of my favourite things!
This is the quilt using Sultry.

Displayed care of my new "design wall" (usually known as the really ugly green curtains in my unit!)

It doesn't have a name yet, although I'm open to suggestions. It's a disappearing nine patch, and went together super fast.

I really want to machine quilt it myself, as it's not huge, and it feels like it might be a managable size for my first machine quilting experience. I have visions of a large twirly flower in each of the large squares with trailing swirls to join them together, but first I have to baste it and I hate basting. I really HATE basting!

In the meantime I have 9 metres (or so) of binding to sew on to a secret project!
