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.
