I am writing this post a head because as it posts – I will be deep in dreamland, and adjusting to a 3-hours-earlier time zone in Portland.
Stephen from London sent me some lovely photos of his current baby quilt in progress, and of quilts from a show he visited recently and thought you might want to see what goes on over there!
Isn’t this floral background going to be just scrumptious in this baby quilt! I love to see the other fabrics he has laid out next to his sample-in-progress, these are the fabrics he picked up at the show ---yummy!
This is going to be one lucky baby!
Snowball blocks are always great for an alternate block --- I love how they chain things together on the diagonal!
You seemed to find my last quilt-show post useful for your blog, so here is some more stuff you can use to fill the gaps while you are travelling!
Big quilt and craft show yesterday, the Spring Knitting and Stitching Show, and these were some of my favourites - and this time I remembered to snap the labels too, so you have all the info you need.
The "Baby Quilt" is my new project, a quick and simple one for a friend who has taken a penniless young mum under her wing - and a good way to use up some of those beautiful large florals that just SIT in my stash - those are 8" blocks.
The fabrics at the top of that photo (bit dark, I know) are my loot from the Show yesterday - they will go into "Lazy Sunday"
LOVE the new Quiltcam experience, especially with the music turned down - made it MUCH easier for me to hear what you were saying.
Very best wishes,
Stephen in wet and windy London
Let the show begin! The placards underneath each photo will share the description, no commentary needed from me!
This one is missing a placard – but it is LOVELY!
Love the interwoven 3-D effect in these stars. Great work!
Thank you so much for sharing, Stephen ---I am SEW INSPIRED, aren’t you??
