A work in progress and another giveaway

Well, tis the time of the year to give..... This time the giveaway comes courtesy of the lovely Tina who owns my local quilt shop Tikki.
Tikki is so local that it takes me only 3 Minutes to get there. You could say way too local for the wallet. So you find me there most Saturdays for a chat with Corinne, Alison or Tina.

Tina gave me a fabric pack of Mod Century a week ago and I was totally smitten with it. This was just the fix I needed after the Liberty marathon. A burst of colour that got my brain bubbling right away. Aren't these colours gorgeous; the oranges paired with aqua and grey, just to die for.

And the best thing is that some of the prints have text as a background. Isn't that just fabulous ?

 So I put my thinking cap on and started planning. Soon I pulled out more and more text fabrics some neutral solids, some coloured solids and started stitching log cabin blocks.

I find piecing log cabin blocks very therapeutic. This little beauty here is waiting to be quilted and I can't wait to get on with it this week.
