Quilty Quarters

New batiks from Moda. Delivered to me on Thursday actually, so I had been thinking about them for only two days really, one and a half days if we are wanting exact details... 
The quilt that Messy Maureen has been making is from a Woman's Weekly  magazine, a special craft edition which Maureen, very kindly, lent to me. So I had been thinking about that too... for a few weeks actually. It's a nice easy one. Obviously, thinking about such wonderful things can be dangerous... oh yes! in the end, I treated myself from my "Table Top Shop, wadding in the spare room", to a small quantity of the new and rather gorgeous batik fabric. .
 I love the smell of a Batik when it's ironed.. is that weird?  I cut it all up, mostly into 5" squares with loads of 2 3/4" squares and played stitchy patchwork... for the whole day, yes you heard me correctly the WHOLE DAY yesterday, Saturday!! I started cutting at approximately 8am and finished at 6pm, of course there was a tea break, a coffee break or two and a rather rapid lunch break... Is it possible to have tooooooo much fun??
I've been weeding my blooming garden since 7:30am this morning, it's now 10am, coffee break.... two more hours should see me done, weeded, tidied, swept up and.... back in my wonderful Quilty Quarters!! yeeeeha!

Definitely not possible to have too much fun when you produce things like this. I agree that ironed batiks do smell different, must be the waxing process I guess.
