It's been a little quiet on the blogging front this week, but have no fear I have indeed been busy sewing. In fact, I have spent quite some time on my design floor and behind the sewing machine.Strips and Bricks Quilt, way back in June last year. The quilt design is by Malka Dubrawsky and was featured in the April 2009 issue of Sew Hip Magazine. My original quilt was purchased by a customer who loves it so much that she has since requested a larger version of the same quilt.
I have tweaked block measurements to suit quilt size. 437 individual fabric pieces were laid out on my design floor, and after much rearranging they were methodically pieced together. Perseverance.
There are lots of little detailed prints in the quilt for added interest, although I think it is the quilting itself that will give this quilt its character. But first I am going to have to await the arrival of the backing fabric. Patiently.
