I have a lot of plans for the sewing machine in 2012 (but knowing my life with the boys, many will remain in the clouds of my dreams). But the biggest (literally) projects I have in mind are the quilts for my two youngest. I so love the thought of keeping them wrapped in warmth with things I have sewn. It's a tidy little metaphor for loving them. So I resolve to sew two quilts, my first two ever (if you discount the make-it-up and get-some-help job of making the Big One's quilt twelve or more years ago).
I am really lusting after the Erin McMorris’s Summersault fat quarter bundle from Backstitch (image on left). But if I stay true to the Resolution, I ought to get some fabrics to help make the boys' quilts, so the £40 gift voucher from Fancy Moon (image on right) is the one to go for.
All I have to do now is get planning those quilts! Is this a good excuse to treat myself to Jane Brocket's Gentle Art of Quiltmaking book, do you think?
