Wuthering Heights .......

I'm not sure if this happens to anyone else or not, but, you know whenever a range of fabric just speaks to you that you must have it no matter what - this fabric range just appeals to me so much - I love it! I had actually forgotten that I had it, as it had been put away in a drawer so that I wouldn't actually cut it up by accident and far as I can remember its out of print now, so I didn't want to waste an inch of it.

I had this pattern in my stash and thought it would be perfect (it uses a charm pack or 5" squares), as I also had a charm pack of this fabric range as well (I did tell you that the fabric spoke to me to buy it - didn't I!). So I have started cutting out my fabric in preparation for making this quilt which I think I will hang on my wall behind the bed as the finished size will be about 42" x 42". I have also seen a lovely free pattern, on the net, for a bed size quilt and I think I should have enough for that - if only I could remember where I saw it - lol.

It has been a while since I did any quilting, and I know that I really should be sewing up some bags, but this project has just grabbed me and I have missed quilting. Well, I suppose the old saying is true 'A change is as good as a rest'.

Just last weekend, I pulled out my Wuthering Heights collection (and a little Mistletoe Manor thrown in) and started a hexagon quilt. It is beautiful fabric.
