Hallo, Crafty Cat Corner!
I've just read your request on Kath's Blog so am sending you the address where I found this quilt. It's quite addictive but, as usual, the cutting takes longer than stitching together. It was a bit hit and miss at the end but seems to have come out OK and you can always lengthen it as I did when I realised the trimmed strips were going to be too short.
I'm just waiting for a skein of cotton perle to arrive so I can Mennonite Tack it now I've put together the sandwich.
Haven't yet sorted out how to attach a Comment Form to my Blog so - hope to hear from you in the future!!
The address is Scroll down and there's the quilt, called An Easy and Colorful Herringbone Quilt. I think Chevron is a nicer nme for a vegetarian to use...

A couple of days ago I took this photo of a hover fly and ladybird on a Kathleen Wheeler clematis flower in the garden, just a try out using the camera on Macro focus. I'm quite pleased that the insects stayed still long enough for me to take it! It hasn't been this sunny since.
