Each year I manage to attend a workshop for a mystery quilt. This one was held on a day that was 41c but thankfully the workshop was held in air conditioned comfort.
This is the end result.
It is a small lap quilt – about 40 X 40 inches. I tend to make them small as I like to see how the pattern goes together, then I like to choose the fabrics I think will work best and make another quilt.
Have a look at the fabric and colours in the original, here.
My colours don’t show up well in the photo so here is a close up of the fabrics.
The fabrics are from Leesa Chandler’s Passage To India range.
I think a lot of straight line and zig zag quilting will work for this little one.
We have had a few milder days but are now back to heat wave conditions. I definitely prefer to be inside once the temps go over 40c on a regular basis. As a result, more sewing is happening.
I have made all the blocks for the Kitchen Window quilt and will hopefully complete the framing in the next few days.
I have also made all the blocks for a quilt using the disappearing pinwheel/churn dash blocks. I think I may keep it simple with white sashing between the blocks.
I will have a play with the layout for both of these quilts. Again, a perfect activity for indoors with the air conditioner.
Enjoy your weekend.
