10 yards


Here is a quilt of my own,
inspired by the many quilters who have
made quilts with a modern retro feel

I purchased fabric from one of my favourite
online stores.
10 yards of fabric from the one range.
I made the top with the addition of olive coloured
homespun.
 

Hmmm, there's a bit of fabric over!!!??
So, I made a pieced back.
I got to use fabric I really liked that didn't
make it to the front of the quilt.



Hmmmm, What about those selvages??
Easy Peasy!!
Mug rugs with tiny quarter Dresden's in one corner,
Free motion quilted on my domestic machine.


10 yards is allot of fabric!
So here's one more thing.


The pattern for the squares can be found at
Hyacinth Quilt Designs
I have made this design before in a lager block size
so when I saw that she had reduced the size
to mini, I thought I know what I'm going
to do with that and the other leftovers.


Not much left now!!
Or so I thought,
I found this folded up in my stash
when I was planning another stash busting quilt.


Oh well, I'm sure this happens to the best of us
I shall wait for inspiration for how I will use this.
Almost finished now, I just have the binding to do.
The cot size quilt will be for sale when it's finished,
So, if your interested, feel free to contact me.


Thanks For Popping By
