It's been a bit like crazy patchwork so I've tidied it up to make it easier to follow... thanks for being patient! Click on my sidebar button if you'd like to see more photos of finished blocks

There's a separate page in my sidebar - Here is where you'll find each new pattern and other info
Each stitchery pattern in the series will be posted in the first week of each month with instructions for you to download
The finished project will be a small wallhanging approx 26" x 27" - you can add an extra border to make it bigger if you wish
A fat 1/4 of background fabric will be enough to complete all of the stitcheries
****** Extra info ******
Fat 1/4 stitchery fabric saving layout - trace each shape size, leaving about 1/2" to 1" between each block. Keep in mind that your fabric will draw in just a little with the stitching...
Remember, the trimming is done AFTER all of the blocks have been traced and stitched
The mini quilt includes some simple patchwork piecing and foundation piecing - instructions and photos will be provided
I used DMC stranded cottons, if you wish to use a different brand try one of the many online thread conversion sites (Type 'DMC thread conversion chart' into your search engine)
There will be sneak peaks of the next month's pattern as we go, along with the 'real' photos that provide the inspiration for the stitcheries
I'd love to see photos of your finished blocks so post them on your blog or email them to me - let me know if you've posted them and I'll send some lurkers over :-)
I check my inbox several times a day, if you have any questions please email me
