I started Jess’ Big Chevron Quilt – as you can see. The chevrons are really taking shape, or not. I decided to make it slightly more complicated, and try my hand at stamp collection as a first step (12 first steps to be precise).
I cannot show you why I am going with such an orange brown theme – I am getting ‘it’ back over the weekend. All I can tell you it is orange and brown – and useful… Hence my fabric choices

Owl Wonderful Medallions; Lotta Jansdotter - Echo
To make the block I followed the (amazing) tutorial of Oh Fransson!
I did not have scissors small enough – so I had to improvise a bit..
It works, and look at how everything matches perfectly. If you have not tried this tutorial – do. It is really rewarding.
1 down, 11 to go... Better get sewing! Linking up to WIP Wednesday today.
