A traditional patchwork quilt made from stash fabric including many small and medium scale floral prints as well as stash basics such as ginghams and dots.
Sew Simple was my sewing motto this last week or so; a week of school holidays, frosty cold - and late start - mornings and long lazy days. Collating fabric continues to bring me much joy and I am grateful that it comes naturally. I am often asked about my process for choosing fabrics and must admit that I don't spend much time thinking about the process, but rather just do and trust my eyes and instincts.
Whilst the sewing was simple I did spend extra time on the quilting. I have quilted a 1 inch grid of intersecting lines - all quilting lines run from edge to edge - using a quilting guide attached to my walking foot to space the lines at regular intervals. Stitch, stitch, stitch ... it is time consuming but well worth the effort. I love this texture!
Of course, ahem, it needed a black/white stripe binding ...
I have updated my Etsy Store.
