This quilt was on show in America last year and many of my students had lovely photos of just about every section of the quilt and insisted I make a replica so we could all own such a beautiful quilt.
I was reluctant at first as I thought it looked too intense and I knew there were other patterns available but after much pushing and emails like WE WANT YOU TO DO IT I gave in. I must say I have had so much fun with this quilt and been given lots of hexagons and stars to add to my quilt I am finding it lovely to do.
I really didn't realise I bought this much fabric for the quilt, I blame Judie Rothermel she just keeps making great fabrics then the shops I work for buy fabrics they know I like so they also must take some of the blame but really...
Sunday- sort out fabrics for quilt into colours.
But wait there's more.
Five hours later colour's sorted for baskets and flowers.
Today glue baste baskets stems and handle's so when I am away this weekend I can sew them down.
Also making sure the pattern doesn't read like the designer was on drugs.
Pattern work's fine, will post some Folk Art quilts next time.
I need to pack for Blueberries and it is 7.30pm so bye for now.
