And so it begins



So originally I was going to go with Block of Month from The Home Patch but after looking at how much fabric I already own I decided to go with my own stash .... 
So too begin I'm using Floral Gathering Shirtings as some backgrounds and everything else will be from a Midwinter Refs layer cake and the Reds I got in my birthday swap :)) 
So today I'm going to cut my backgrounds , all ready for the weekend so I can sit and stitch .
