Still slowly working on Red is a Neutral and UandUQAL
but an unexpected quilt is in progress.
I'd forgotten a commitment made some time ago to put a couple of quilts,
and possibly cushions, in a small joint exhibition with my husband,
he's a painter, beginning 1st May.
So, new Kaffe Collective fabric arrived, free pattern
from Free Spirit on their web site, this would be a good size to hang at
45" x 63"
as the display wall is not huge.
Luckily I had some of the required fabrics in my stash
and the remainder came from my order.
I fell for the Stoneflower pattern and had ordered
yardage in all the colourways.
This is Lavender Stoneflower and below is the true colour, the photo
above shows possibly a little bluer. Twelve 9 and 1/2" pieces all fussy cut.
Small squares cut in both light and dark - black cat once more
deciding to try and snuggle up to the fabrics.
I couldn't resist sewing two blocks up rather than waiting until
all the hsts and squares were together.
I'm mighty happy with the look of this and hoping it doesn't sell
in the exhibition! You notice in this picture the Lavender once again
shows slightly darker.
Whilst I was cutting fabric my package of the new
Anna Maria Horner range arrived and I love it!
I have plans for this later in the year.
Quite different from my favourite KF but it's always good to step outside
our comfort zone now and again.
Now I don't use much brown in my quilts but in a blog post
she asked was there a colour that we don't buy and/or
don't use, I replied mine was brown, but see what I bought, the AMH fabric below!
Had it been an out and out brown it would have been a no-no for me.
There we have the sum of my quilting activity since my last post,
pain is doing me no favours presently so I'm taking things slowly.
A wander around the garden showed the effects of
Autumn being upon us but the storm lillies are flowering,
tiny wee flowers only about four inches high but always good to
see them at this time of the year.
Happy Quilting until next time.
