Ahhhhh  February almost over
and colour is never far away.
This week, when I saw again the strips I cut some years ago
I felt an itching to use all those lovely "left overs"

Lots and lots of strips, 3,5 cm wide
arranged like a rainbow

Two boxes in fact ánd some new strips ...
because when you start thinking about a new piece

it turns out you don't have the "right" colour

As long as I have the "Glorious Patchwork" book
by Kaffe Fassett, I loved the quilt
that's adorning the cover,
but never came around using that particular pattern,
untill now !

A loose arrangement with what I have so far
(squares of about 30, 15 and 7,5 cm)

Many more blocks will be made

(and yet more strips to cut)

This is what I needed all the strips for in the first place !

You have to be very neat with the stitching
but in fact it's not thát difficult
because you're working on a grid (1 cm)
printed on interface 
( vlieseline  rasterquick )

And that it's the end of February
is showing in the garden too !

After the winter aconites and the snowdrops :
there are the small irises
(ha, each year there are móre !)
