I know it's not seasonal but that's just the way it is! Actually I finished this quilt a couple of weeks ago but kept forgetting to photograph it in daylight.
I have now begun work on my final piece of this seasonal quartet which is inspired by photographs of wisteria taken at Wightwick Manor last July.
I am quite happy with how this is looking. The background is a white rectangle of fabric with a curved strip of green fabric inserted into it. The 'blossoms' are cut from a hand dyed fabric and bonded into place.
A friend was recently asked if she could finish a quilt for someone whose sight was failing and she brought it along to a meeting last week. The quilt top is almost complete so we set about removing the many hundreds of papers which were fascinating in their own right. Old letters, some hand written, some typed, programmes from theatrical productions, accounts, magazine pages etc. These papers were carefully collected as they tell such an interesting story about the maker.
I think I might be sorting out some suitable papers and cutting them up in readiness for a new ongoing project.....
I wonder how many of us have paper pieced projects tucked away somewhere!
Thanks for reading.
