This is the design wall in my garage where I spend time planning and sorting through my fabric
I have started work on a quilt , It is now pinned together and ready for hand quilting . I will show the front when it is finished, hopefully the end of the month or just after .
I bought good shirts from a charity shop and added fat 1/4 s from my stash . The backing has a faded streak across the back , it was a reduced price but with worn and washed on the front I don,t mind about the fade mark .
I will call it my shabby chic quilt . In my eyes it is lovely, soft colours ,simple design . not out of a book . I have not made a quilt from traditional patterns for quite a while now . I have been using 4" squares to make my cottage quilts . This one is not squares . If you look closely at the photo you will see the faded line .
This afternoon I will watch a film with my work on my knees and start quilting . I have drawn round a dinner plate for my stencil . Everything on the cheap but the wadding is the best quality.
