ciao to everybody :)

i am Francesca from Milano.
i joined this blog a long long time ago, thanks a lot Perri!

i have had a couple of hard months and i really didnt have the time to post  nothing.

i now have all the vignette in stitches, (made a subscription) and the fabrics i love.

a few days ago i decided i would have stitched the mystery quilt....
i was not so sure, meanwhile i received this other collection that i love
and i finally took my decision.
i have always been scared of stitching exagons, i am a beginner, not an expert like you all.
i wanted to challenge exagons.

i have found out that they are not so complicated and that stitching them is a joy!!!!!!!
these are the first 3, i am not going to make the classic grandmothers garden like Leanne did, I will do a random quilt. i have done 9 up to now and i am quite satisfied.
of course i have some wip. i dont know a real quilter with at least 3 or 4 wips. this new one will be the real one for a relaxing time. the one you can bring with yourself everywhere, i am already loving it.
and the Leanne's trick of the glue instead of basting everything is great, u spare a lot of time.
i also love the quilt on the first issue of Vignette, the very simple one with "where the wind blows" fabrics.
i love this collection.
i hope my english is enough for making me understand by you all.
finally i have my first post here, this blog is wonderful.
hugs to all :)
