Singing in the rain...

 Finally made a start of my quilt. 
Thought I would start with this block as it was nice a simple and a good one to get me teeth into.  I have chosen Butterscotch & Roses by Fig Tree for my fabric, I have started with a layer cake and will by some yardage shortly.
I am doing blanket stitch as I have not long been quilting so I wanted to stick with something that I know.
Can't wait to see how different they all turn out, its going to be fun.
Love me :-)
