The Secret is Out

Today I shared a wee secret on instagram.


For the last couple of months, I've been working on something big. Its been difficult to keep it a secret, but I wanted to wait until the right time to tell you all about it.

I am going to host my first Quilt Along and it will be called In Flight. 

It won't start until January so you have lots of time to plan your fabrics and decide whether or not you are interested. There will be lots more detailed information in due time, but for now I thought that it might be a good to give you a heads up as to what's coming.


My pattern testers are working hard behind the scenes checking that the patterns work and making sure that they are as good as they can possibly be.

Today I could wait no longer, I sewed my first block. Its called Eagle Soaring High. I can't wait to sew some more!


Its my first time hosting a quilt along and I have a lot of decisions to make as to how it runs. One decision that has already been made is that there will be prizes, but you'll have to wait till January to find out what they are... 

If you have any strong preferences as to how you like quilt alongs to be run or advice I'm all ears!
Who will join me? Its going to be fun isn't it!

  7. These designs are gorgeous, I love that the silhouettes are so identifiable! Thank you for putting up a few examples of how the quilt could look - I really like the last one. I don't know if I'd jump in for a whole quilt but I'll definitely do the duck for a mini!
