Once you get hold of a copy of the book you can make one of these cute blocks. The book is all about fussy cutting and finding that perfect piece of fabric (as well as amazing paper pieced patterns and great projects!) so this block perfectly encapsulates the fun you will have with this book.
The idea is to let your fabric choices ‘tell a story’. Like this farmer loading his hay wagon! This is from a gorgeous new fabric by Darlene Zimmerman called ‘Morningside Farm’. We have it in the Edinburgh shop but I have been too busy to list it online – sorry folks!
I sacrificed more than one precious Heather Ross gnome to make this block (I must really like my neighbours!).
Taking the story telling literally here with this ‘incy wincy spider’ fabric.
A happy hot-air balloon!
…then I used one of my favourite FMQ patterns, the double loop, to quilt it in a super quick time. This will give a lovely crinkle when I wash it!
I chose this Robert Kaufman flannel for a cosy backing (oops my Croc got in a few of these shots!) and bound it in a red and white Spot On fabric.
And viola! A fun and fast cot quilt!

There are some wonderful projects in this book and I would thoroughly recommend it. I may even have found the perfect quilt to make for my husband one day as he particularly loves one of them!
