Just bought this pattern.....
I need a challenge, now I’m debating buying the templates but at over £100 I think I might just have to use the paper patterns in the booklet.

What a fantastic project!  That should keep you out of trouble!!
I might look as though I'm talking to you, but inside my head I'm sewing.

Wow, that looks huge.  How big is it?  It is very beautiful though!
A measly 2.5m of stash used so far!

Yeah, to some people. Us mere mortals may struggle more.

Effie that’s looks wonderful. I think you’re brave to even contemplate it. Looking forward to your fabric choices

Clever use of strips and checks add to the allure for me. Go for it.

The Delilah quilt looks lovely and I like your fabric choices - can't wait to see it as it progresses.  Amazed that you can just whip up a 'scrappy' quilt in the meantime.   :loveit:

Progress report... just got a few half diamonds to do.. I thought it would be just a matter of cutting them on two but that way there’s no seam allowance so I need to make more...
