Yes, I have actually done some sewing! Two more disappearing nine patch blocks for my friend’s daughter’s quilt:
I really must get this finished so I can start making a fun, liberated quilt 😉
It’s been ages since I bought a quilting book, but when I heard Gwen Marston had a new one out – “Liberated Medallion Quilts” – I couldn’t resist.
It’s chock-full of inspiration, including quilts both from Gwen herself and her students:
I think medallion quilts are my preferred type. The fact that you don’t have to decide how it’s going to look from the start, you just make decisions border by border. It feels like a very organic process. Here’s the medallion quilt I made for Gman last year:
It started off as a regular log cabin quilt but I got bored with that, so turned it into a log cabin star, then made up borders as I went along. Instructions from Gman were for red and black only but luckily he didn’t mind the maverick splash of lime green 🙂
So, that’s what I want to be doing in my quilting life. But first to finish this blooming disappearing nine patch quilt. 16 blocks made, 4 more to go…
