When I started blogging it was a away
for me to organise and keep track of the things
I make so that in time my kids would have
a virtual record of all my work.

I didn't realise the doors it would open.

I have met so many wonderful people through blogging and swaps
and I consider myself to be very lucky and very blessed.

One of these people is Sharon.

We met last year IRL and well the rest they say is history.

She has become one of my dearest friends - we even shared a beach holiday this year.

Sharon had this great idea that we should make a

Seeing as we both love Bonnie and Camille we have decided to use their fabrics
and Camille's patterns.

So far we have this...

Simple Life from Simply Retro

 Flower Girl



The idea is that we each make 2 identical blocks
so that in the end we will both have exactly the same quilt tops
but put together in our own way.

I hope Sharon doesn't mind me pinching her photos
(but she has nicked mine, so I think I'm safe).

I think we are going to have 2 amazing and beautiful quilts.

Now to let Camille know what we're up to...

Have a great week.
