Tessellate Quilt .... A new start

It all started with a little Show and Tell ........


Nicky, the owner of my Local Quilt Shop, Honeysuckle Patchwork showed off her new
 project and I instantly fell in love and just knew I had to make it too.  
I also sent a picture to a friend and she too fell in love.  (Always happy to enable a friend).


Originally I was going to use the same fabrics as Nicky but then decided that I wanted to add a more modern / me feel to this Quilt.  


This is what I had out to play with and already I've gone stash diving!
I think this will be a fun project.   Just don't expect me to finish it any time soon. 

After "party prep" yesterday I had a play with the center block.
(I think the child in the background was a little worn out after a tough game of football
 and blowing up some balloons)


Here is some of the party prep.


I just love the look of mini milk bottles and the paper straws.

  7. I always get a little worried now when I see a post from you. Often I have the thoughts like yourself, I must make that too! Lol. I need to start resisting temptation now. I really really love this. I can't wait to see more but need to not think about it and patiently wait your next instalment. Great fabric choice too
