Progress on my newest quilt “My Small World”, first mentioned here, has slowed down a little owing to some quilting on my long-arm for a client. However, I have got some updated photos to show of where I am up to in this little quilt.
I have now finished Parts 1,2 & 3- there are 5 parts in all. There is a Quilt-Along happening on some other blogs- such as: the Very Kerry Berry blog. It’s handy to check on there for hints and tips and see how others are coming along in their quilt tops.
There’s lots of choices and decisions to make with which fabrics to use and lots of different blocks and techniques to use:
.. you have to think about which pieces look nice next to each other, how does a particular piece fit in the wider section, and then, in turn, how does that section play along with the next larger piece of the top.
But you also get to have fun by placing fussy-cut pieces in hand-picked spots. Like my little red bus here?
This quilt ticks two large boxes for me: the cityscape theme and lots of fabrics to use- essentially the scrappy look, my favourite type of quilt!
And another thing…
Gatton Quilters’ Exhibition of quilts and hand-worked pieces is now open at the Lockyer Valley Cultural Centre Art Gallery. Hope you can get along and have a look! We had the official opening on Friday night, with Ali George doing the honours as our guest speaker. A lovely night. I hope to show some photos of the works on display in coming weeks.
