Its been almost three months since I started this blog and I haven’t done anything.  Well not true, I have been working on two quilts.

I’ve finished the centre, a feathered star, of my Acanthus quilt made from mainly Morris Workshop fabrics by Barbara Brackman for Moda.  This is a ‘design as I go’ quilt.  I am trying to develop an English Medallion feel. This next border is made up of square in a square blocks interspersed with some Broderie Perse blocks.

I’ll put up some images of it soon.

The other quilt is a quick top made up from large 10″ squares of 1930s fabrics.  It’s yet to go to the quilters, but I’m thinking of using bamboo wadding.  I just love bamboo it washes up so beautifully.  I have bamboo towels, a beautiful skirt made from bamboo and I’m collecting bamboo fabrics to make a quilt from.
