A new quilt entered the house this week just in time for No 1 sons return home from his extended training 'holiday' in the States. He came back all big and beefy with triceps the size of footballs! (Hard to believe I gave birth to him) The quilt is green - of course! Very green .. all sorts of tones and shades and bits of this and that .. all thrown into the mixing pot with no planning or cares! It was a very liberating quilt to make and turned out much larger than I had originally planned. It is sitting on a UK kingsize bed (a US queen) so that should give you some idea how big it is but dont ask for measurements because I've forgotten! The backing fabric is a gorgeous Bali print batik in brown and gold and I quilted it with my fav pattern of the year - Luscious Leaves in a large 17" format. It quilted up a dream on Matildas Own wadding and I'm really pleased with it. Its a Bill Kerr and Weeks Ringle design from their book ... The Modern Quilt Workshop . There website is Fun Quilts which is worth a visit for design a and colour inspiration.
