Well, hopefully this will be the chance to change this, if we can share as many pre-cut projects and ideas as possible, together with my free monthly patterns (subscribe for free here) we can all bring those beauties off the top shelf or from under the bed, unwrap them and get cutting!
To get started this week, I thought I'd share some of the beautiful linkies from last week... who would have thought the humble square could look so good!

This week I've been working on a new quilt pattern using my 12pc fat quarter bundle in these bright prints from Red Rooster's Basically Hugs collection. This pattern, which will hopefully also be a kit, uses the ever-versatile half-square triangle. There are so many ways to make these little gems, but my favourite is still the foundation-piecing method, you can read my tutorial and download templates for seven different sizes here.
Each of my sixteen blocks are made up of 28 HSTs which makes 448 in total! ahhh!! Good job these templates make 12 at a time! Wish me luck :)
My wonderful husband has just sprung a surprise few days away for my birthday next week, so rather than invite folk to a party and then not turn up myself - how rude - I'll see you again in a fortnight, but back to today...
Now it's your turn - grab the button below for your sidebar, and join the party! Don't forget to check out these other great linky parties too - Let's Bee Social, Midweek Makers, and Needle & Thread Thursday.
