And this morning I woke to an email telling me I had won the instructions to this bag from Emma, from Liz's blog: Moments which ties in perfectly with a recent donation of fabric!
Where to start?
OK Richmond and Kew quilters - we all, all 13 of us, got our Consequence Quilts back. I didn't get photos of anyone else's but they are all fab, and really diverse.
Mine, of course, is the best!
I contributed the fabric together with very vague "any design - what is your favourite?" request.
Sue H made a row of these 1/4 log cabin type blocks, saying " I liked the effect this block gives although its very simple" She's added some almost solids: great fabric choices Sue!
Julie made a row of crazy log cabin blocks with gorgeous (and prefect) flowers in the centres. " I chose this 'crazy' design because I wanted to try something new (for me) I used strips to make it, without a pattern. Hope it works!?" - oh yes, it works!!!!
Ruth made a row of these "square on point in a square. I loved the colours" She added some calming greens too which work really well, as do the blocks
Sue B added a row of pinwheels with a lovely salmonny spraytime tying them all together. She wrote "I like playing with half square triangles. Also I think pinwheels always look fun and playful" - I was hoping someone would do HSTs - lovely to look at but I'm not a fan of making them!
And Hilary must have read my mind for my other 'hoped for' design. She wrote "I love working with bright colours and wanted to introduce some of me own patterned fabric. the curves in the block 'Drunkard's Path' contrast with the other blocks" I had hoped for a few curves, but got prefect drunkards path portholes!!!!
In case you didn't realise, I am really chuffed with my returned strips!! I'm eager to add some sashing and getting this finished! Thank you all
And the bag - its this lovely every day tote - a PDF with loads of idiot proof photos
Good job I've got a week off next week - guess what I'll be making!
