First of all thank you to everyone who left a comment on the mile a minute top - much appreciated! But be warned - it is infectious, once you start making them you can't stop - check out Andrea and Lynda's blogs to see theirs, and Patti, who started it all, has completed a mammoth 534 blocks

I couldn't resist joining the Four Seasons Quilt Swap and pulled these fabrics from the stash for the Fall Quilt. Can I cram them all into a quilt that has a maximum size of 18" X 18"? You betcha!


My other non-quilty news is that I have got a new job in a college, starting in the middle of September. Even better, it is within walking or cycling distance of home so I might get a bit fitter, you never know.

Lovely fabrics - and well done on the job front - does that mean you get (dare I mention it) longer holidays?

That will be an interesting little top, I think it will stand out with that much colour in it!
I love your mile a minute top, all those scrappy bits coming together into something pretty and useful. Better get building up the stash of strings for the next one.

Congrats on the new job! Those fabrics are wonderful, and I can't wait to see them in an 18"x18" format!!!

I had the same plan - need to measure mine to make sure I am within the 18x18.... (I know one of mine is bigger - which is why I made the second one...)

I am a four seasons swaper too and I am very excited thinking on the project. I'm sure you will be able to put all your nice fabrics on the quilt. Congratulations for you ne job.
