Quilts, Scooters, Spots and Stripes

This week I have been overtaken by the quilting bug. This all began when I stumbled upon the lovely book 'Material Obsession' whilst browsing the local book store. I have a fabric stash, and I love fabrics, so its strange that its taken me this long to finally delve into the world of quilting. Anyhow, I have decided to make a very simple quilt from the book, which is made by sewing together small fabric squares, all the same size, using some fabric from my stash as well as some fabric which I bought especially for this quilt.

While browsing the wonderful online fabric store Duckcloth for my quilt fabric, I came across this funky fabric with scooters, stripes and spots, which I'm hoping to make into a couple of cushion covers....I think I know who will also be enjoying these cushions.

Otherwise I have cast on for the Equinox Raglan (Ravelry link) by Debbie O'Neill.

As soon as the Noro yarn arrived I just HAD to cast on straight away. I get immense pleasure watching this yarn knit up into stripes of such wonderfully rich colours, Im enjoying this so much that I cant put it down, so I should have it finished in no time at all.
