Who says reproduction fabrics are dull and boring? Lots of people make that comment when I say that I mostly make quilts using "repros". I also love Kaffe fabrics, and lots of bright modern fabrics as well. Mostly I love the traditional "olde worlde" prints, and it is surprising how bright you can go.
So this is the Rolling Stone quilt top, with the extra 5 blocks made. They are the ones along the left hand side. It is a pretty big quilt now 75" square. It was too big to get a photo on the floor, so took it outside onto the clothes line, in the blistering heat! My friend Irene calls my clothes line "the quilt gallery"!
I loved playing with the colour arrangements so much I could probably keep sewing, but I do think this is big enough now. I am thinking of doing the "big stitch" quilting with Perle cotton on this one. So far I have done 2 quilts this way, and it happens very fast compared to the "little stitch" quilting that I am so use to.
the Pom Pom Tree - is now ready. Block 3 is on the Legend and Lace website. This is another good example of bright reproduction fabrics. Love this bright blue!
