Finally a day bright enough to allow me to photograph my latest quilt...
... a very hard thing to do without someone holding it up for you. Bear with me whilst I attempt various positions, ok?
After the 'over the door', we move onto the 'casually thrown over a chair'
which is followed swiftly by the 'draped over the most uncomfortable sofa in the world'
I give up. You'll have to use your imagination here...
The quilt measures 60" by 60". The 'dresdens' are made using a very old layer cake of Heather Bayley's fabric which had been in my stash for years, the background is pale grey and the back is a lovely pink with red polkadots fabric from IKEA. I didn't want to emphasize the border so I used the same pale grey.
I also chosed the wise shortcut of using my Bernina's blanket stitch as a way of appliqueing the blocks onto the background. I don't think I would have ever finished it otherwise!
Now to the next one... a very simple/two colours Halloween quilt... there's no rest for the wicked!
