A sneak peek at my new project

I am about to embark on my first quilt. Wish me luck! I've done my planning and scheming and washing. The fabric is Anna-Maria Horner's Good Folks Collection. I love the colour combinations and the prints, they are old-fashioned and modern at the same time. The squares of good folks will be supplemented with some plain squares (to make a king-sized quilt cover) and the back will be some gingham or something suitably random.

I was inspired partly by the beauty of the colours and the fabric, and partly by Denyse Schmidt's quilts. Her book is great and really easy to understand. It makes me think that I can do this! Hopefully this notion is not mis-lead and it shall all turn out well!

  1. I like the felt scrap wool beads-Mother's Day? Or too soon.
