Hi, I hope you’re enjoying a lovely holiday Monday (I guess this only applies to UK people- sorry to those of you who’re having a ‘normal’ Monday!). We’re still experiencing incredibly cold and changeable weather. This morning we set off for a family walk in cold but sunny weather to be met half-way round with biting wind and driving rain and sleet. Still, we all had a great time and any cobwebs are well and truly washed off and blown away. We ‘warmed’ up afterwards with ice cream……..apart from me who has far more sense and had a chocolate brownie and coffee!
Anyhow, I just wanted to pop in and share a quilt that I made back in January and which is in this month’s Love Patchwork and Quilting Magazine (Issue 34). It always seems strange to work so hard on a quilt or project and not be able to share anything about it until months later – but it doesn’t stop the thrill of opening the magazine and seeing my work photographed so beautifully and my name in print!
If you fancy an easy and dramatic quilt then this is for you…….it takes a while but is worth the effort, especially to show off bold colours like those in the Alison Glass fabric I used.
Fabric: Alison Glass, Fat Quarter Bundles of Handcrafted 2 and Sunprint 2015 Ink
and, Robert Kaufman, Essex Yarn Dyed Linen in Charcoal
Dimensions: Finished quilt measures 90in square (it’s a big one!)
