I'm Making A Quilt

Oops *blush* I overspent in the fabric store today! Did I mention that my very first sewing project is a quilt? I've always dreamed of owning a huge and beautiful quilt, and although I know it's an ambitious project I figure you don't learn anything unless you challenge yourself.

I've completed 4 squares of 9 blocks so far, and today I couldn't resist going to purchase more fabric and some batting. Here is what I snapped up:
How cute is that fishscale fabric? I thought I might try my hand at a smaller quilt as well, in girly shades that I can gift to a friend having a little girl, plus it will increase my confidence on my sewing machine.

I could not resist these fun little hedgehogs, I'll be making sweet purses with this fabric, just as soon as I figure out how to install a zipper. Anyone have any tips?

The starry fabric is just so beautiful, I'm going to use it between my quilt blocks.

Look at my stash growing! The cherry print is my absolute fav, I'd love to make a sweet dress out of it.

I'll be regularly updating with my quilts progress and pictures, you can follow my blog either from Bloggers dashboard or the Google reader thingy on the right.

Have you ever taken on an ambitious project? I'd love to hear about it :-)

How very ambitious of you, look forward to watching the progress. Something I long to do too. Careful that fabric stash might just fill the room one day, mine has.

Sorry, not mastered the art of the zip myself yet.
