A new entry

Hi girls,

I am Gabriella and I live in Italy.
I have joined this site few months ago ... but I have never posted ...
I love all version and colour of your works and a big thank you to Leanne for this special pattern.

This is my 1° Block and my version of "Vignette In Stitches" ...

If you want to stopping by to my blog I'll be very happy ^__*

Happy Stitching

I have received my latest vignette magazine and I am sure each one gets better and better. Really exciting news I have at last got my hands on some parlan and I can see what you have all been raving about, it is too late for me to use it on vignette but I shall certainly use it in the future. I have to thank Sandy at cookies and Cream crafts for sending it to me.
I am still only working on the blocks from issue two but a very wise friend told me that all the pleasure is working on a quilt not completing it......

New to Posting ............

Isn't the Vignette Magazine so wonderful and inspiring. I get so excited when the next edition comes out, I read it over and over again. I have started block 1 and nearly finished the embroidery, I need to get ready for the shoe flys. The others are cut and nearly ready to put together. I have just come back from the Urban Retreat in Melbourne and was able to see Leanne's Vignette quilt, wow it looks amasing. I just want to sit and stitch to catch up. I will upload some photo's and show you my progress next post.

Until next time, Happy Stitching xx Meg

A newcomer part two

Early this morning I joined The Hexagon blog, and here I am again. It is so exiting to be a part of these blogs, and I look forward to contribute. I will start on my Vignette Quilt as soon as I have decided on fabric. Any suggestions??

Have fun sewing!

Also Just Starting

I picked up issue one at the Buggy Barn Quilt show last weekend and they will be sending me the next three as soon as they restock.  I finished up my 60+ shoo fly blocks over Labor Day weekend.  The pitfalls of periodic sewing was that I had made a few blocks that were turning out to measure 4&1/4 inches finished rather than the 4&1/2 inches in the directions.  Fortunately I only had to adjust three seams and all should be good.  I actually make 68 blocks just in case.  I plan to get a new camera today so I can share some photos too.  Thanks Leanne for this lovely project!

Just Starting

Hi Everyone, I'm Vanessa R from Melbourne Australia. I have been watching your progress from the start of the blog and have finally got up the courage to start! I am very impressed by everyone's progress and I think I will have to stitch REALLY fast to catch up!
After suffering with the flu last week, I took myself off to Spotlight only to see there was a sale on, and came home with a PILE of fabric. Think I still need a few more colours.

Found this lovely fabric which I am going to use for the borders and binding.
I am due to receive Issue 4 in a few days, so I'm thinking I need to try and stay up-to-date and play catchup at the same time.
I have blogged about it on my blog  Whirling Butterfly, so now it is out there!
Thanks for letting me join in the fun.

Vietnam trip in October

I'm very lucky as I am going on the Vietnam trip with Leanne Beasley and others as was advertised in Vignette. I am very excited and wanted to share the anticipation with some others who are also travelling in October. If you would like to get in touch please comment on this post as I would love to share the excitement with someone.
Cheers Shelley
