From Stars to Windmills and my first linky party!

I am delighted to join on my first Blog Linky party. I came across Liz's lovely blog, Dandelion Daydreams via Sarah at Quilt Candy Girl and decided it was about time I worked out how to join in a linky party as one of my goals for this year is to get better at techie things. 

After finishing the Medallion Star Quilt - see previous post - I was ready to do some serious piecing and had my eye on the Windmill Quilt pattern on the Moda Bakeshop website. The fabric is the gorgeous Tapestry by Fig Tree & Co. and the background is Bella Solid 'Snow'. I ordered this and it arrived earlier this week. For anyone interested Poppy Patchwork has a September sale on a some of the Tapestry fabric collection. I bought the backing and binding from there.

So now I can practice cutting and sewing lots of Half Square Triangles on Big Daisy aka the new sewing machine!
