This week I've been working on the project for a trip down Memory Lane (Warracknabeal 10 November). I roughly sketch ideas and then let the fabric and stitching determine the direction a project goes in.
And I thought I knew where I was heading until I found this stripe at Avonleigh on Monday. The colours are perfect and I have a thing for stripes. Today, I had a punch needle class. Of course I couldn't just leave the shop without buying a piece of fabric. So the chocolate piece had to come home with me. This is an old fabric but I love the print and have a piece in the rasberry.
The borders are on my new quilt and I'm very happy. The background fabric (Roman Holiday range) is a lovely quality fabric. The few quilts I've made with the blocks set on point have ended up with sides and centres all measuring different lengths. So imagine my surprise and delight when this quilt was only out 1/4 inch. It has to be the fabric!
I was looking for shoofly quilts, to decide on my own setting, and came across your beautiful example. Thanks for sharing it, so long ago, so I could find it today!
