The quillting journey
I also purchased a quilting theme calendar to hang in my sewing room and was taken by the design of a quilt featured in that calendar. With no pattern I guessed measurements and made The Blues. I still love the look of the quilt, as blue and white are one of my fav colour combinations, but I cringe when I look at the standard of quilting on the quilt. Having said that it does take turns on my bed when I am having a blue mood. If you look close enough you can see a few odd bits or red or green left overs from my Rooster quilt as I still had quite a limited fabric stash at this point in time.
Oscars quilt (Mother Goose Nursery Rhymes) was all hand appliqued for a girlfriend Gill on the birth of her first son. His brother Oliver was born a few years later and I also hand appliqued the quilt Bears in Heaven kit.
