I have the quilt top together for 'Forks' and it is HUGE! It will easy cover a single bed, and no I haven't measured it yet. It was a bit of a throw by night quilt as I knew how many fatquarters I had to use, then wanted sashings and a border.
Yes the sashings are all a bit odd, planned that way so as to second glance; bit like the towns people of Forks in 'Twilight' - not necessarily what they seem to be at first glance!
I do have some applique work planned but haven't decided exactly what or where yet. The quit seems to need something, and I think it is a little more black and red somewhere.....
This afternoon I have completed most of the cutting for a 1930s quilt, my first one!
There are 280 four-patches in it, and 280 half triangle squares to be made into 140 blocks....I think I need to dig out some more plain white fabric! Can't wait to show this one when I have it together, which will probably be a few days as I have some outings on.
I have to share some recent finds of beautiful stuff.....
Did anyone notice Kris's beautiful Red Brolly quilt in the background of this post???? How cool is that quilt!
A VERY inspiring patchworker.
Have any of you seen THIS gorgeous new BOM that the Quilted Crow girls are running???? It has lots of wool applique...so nice to work with. How gorgeous is it! Gosh, even my DH commented on it - said how that was a really nice quilt that was on the computer last night.... *grin*
Who out there is working on, or planning to work on
It seems that most patchwork shops are selling the pattern folder for Life is Beautiful.
I have found two shops online that are doing Down in the Garden as a BOM
and Patchworks Plus is selling the pattern pack at a great price.
