Intro and my first block

Hello everyone, I am so happy that I now belong to this wonderful blog! My name is Jane and I live in Wales (UK). For months I have been following this blog, and have been in awe of all the wonderful work you all do. I just love seeing the different colours and fabrics, and the finished quilts are amazing!

Around Christmas I ordered the patterns, but because of a house move it took me some while to get this block done. Anyway here it is! Happy stitching!
