a beautiful BOM in the mag 'Patchwork & Quilting' that she quite thought she would like to try, the interest and excitement mounted as others also thought they might like to give it a go..........perhaps it will turn into a group effort? ........time will tell.
The quilt is in lovely soft colours, softer than this pic and is a mixture of applique and pieced blocks, it is a Therese Hylton pattern of a couple of years ago named Flower Dell, perhaps someone out there has made this quilt? would love to hear from you if you have.
But enough of quilt dreams, on to the quilts that made it to Show and Tell yesterday.
Firstly we had this lovely flimsey from Betty H. Betty used a pattern from one of our new books by Kaffe Fasset, in Betty's words, a simple and easy pattern. But such a pretty quilt
While all quilts get admired and closely examined, it's been awhile since a quilt has elicited such interest and excitement as this one from Sue, it is for her Grandson's imminent first Birthday and we all had a lot of fun finding the meaning behind, and discovering some of the hidden pics, little Grandie will love this quilt and spend many hours snuggling under and finding little secrets.
Sue does have a couple of hints for us that she discovered while making this quilt though........... write the name of the store on the selvedge when you purchase fabric, this would take away the need for you to traipse from one end of the coast to the other, begging store owners to think.........did you stock this?........did I buy it here?.......have you got just a tinsy bit more? and the other hint is, for heavens sake, if you have fabric put away for a project......leave it there!!, don't get all carried away thinking you have plenty and won't miss just that little bit..........or you will end up wishing you wrote the store name in the selvedge!
