Hello and welcome to letter H on the Moda designer blog hop!
I’ve been given the letter H for my ‘Hearty Good Wishes’ fabric line and book which are due in your local quilt shop very soon.
My ‘Hearty Good Wishes’ fabric collection and book are inspired by the English coast in the winter time and by my love of listening to the shipping forecast on BBC Radio 4 late at night whilst sewing in my studio with my boys sleeping safely upstairs.
I’m re- making the ‘Good Old Blighty’ quilt from the book in my new fabrics. I’ve finished the applique and am slowly embroidering the names of the sea areas (pattern and instructions in my ‘Hearty Good Wishes’ book).
I live in the centre of town now but I grew up near the white cliffs of Dover (where the tiny piece of dark navy fabric is at the bottom right of England). I’d love to live near the sea again!
So, here are a few of my favourite things beginning with my letter H:
favourite quilt block: Hexagons. I really enjoy English paper piecing
favourite word: Happenstance
favourite food: Honey
favourite memory about school: Home time!
I love quilting because: I love to use my Hands
something I can’t create without: a Happy Heart
somewhere I like being: Home preferably by the warm Hearth
somewhere I’ve been: Honiton, Devon which is beautiful and famous for it’s lace (made for Queen Victoria’s wedding dress and Prince George’s christening gown)
And now I have some treats for you!
I have a fat quarter bundle to giveaway to one lucky reader. Just leave a comment telling me something you like beginning with H.
I’ll draw the winner at random on Friday 28th February (English time!)
And you can find the PDF pattern for the letter H quilt block here.
Hearty Good Wishes!
