For as long as I can remember now, I have started something new at Christmas. It is a good time to start, as people often ask how long it took to make something, or when did I start it, and Christmas is a good time. This one happened by accident. I was scrolling through my magazines to show my visitor some good examples of English Paper Piecing. I found an older copy of Quiltmania magazine No 86, and on the front is a red hexagon quilt, and a medallion quilt.
Shelburne Museum, and it is in the book "Enduring Grace". hmmm....I have that book.......some place. Found it, and yes there is the quilt! The centre is the same, but the borders have been changed. I think I will make a combination of the new and the old.
Would you like to see what my visitor has been doing? Never done patchwork before, but is quite artistic. I thought English Paper Piecing was a way to go. What colours? She chose red and black. How about this for a first attempts?
