I just finished my Pencil Roll whose offcuts spawned the Speaker quilt. I am really pleased with the vibrancy of it. I really enjoyed creating the spectrum of colours. I made it slightly taller so I could keep my knitting needles in it. I've got a bit of a mismatch of my own, my mums and my grandmothers needles. My mum has a huge bag of them so I get to borrow what I need. I am aiming to get the whole range of spotty needles in the end but they don't go down to the really small sizes. In the meantime I keep searching for coloured metal ones like some of my mums but so far I haven't had much luck. Next I might make one for crochet nedles! Perhaps I'd better get back to some crocheting first.
If you're looking for a fun, quick, project to get you started in the world of patchwork and quilting then I highly recommend buying this pattern from Pink Chalk
