Here is my fabric stash for my next quilt. I've fallen in love with Anna Maria's colourways. The voile will make some perfect quilts for Singapore. I plan to make
co-ordinating quilts for my girls bunk-beds.
The pieces to the side may not make it into the quilt but will play a bit more once I have cut out the pieces. I plan to make with simple strips and hand quilted with purl thread.
This is my quilt top 2/3rds done. I started this as therapy when I was trying to get pregnant with my first child. I completed the blocks while trying to conceive and during the first few months of my pregnancy. I never got around to sewing on the sashings to join it all together. I am really enjoying the therapeutic nature of hand sewing. The quilt is very pink and green and I think if I made it now I would probably have broadened the colour spectrum in the quilt. I do love the patterns within the blocks
