I am going to chat with Annette @ Wild Cotton Quilting tomorrow about quilting options for the cot quilt .....I have in mind something swirly but we'll see.
I just love getting things in the post & last week I got a new book - "Liberty Love" by Alexia Marcelle Abegg. There are little & big quilts to make, plus accessories like pincushions, tote bags and a rather cute classic kiddies dress from the '60's. The quilts, while having a vintage background, have a modern twist to them ...... using solids and subtle cream/white prints.
The pattern for the Marcelle Medallion Quilt is in here too - and, judging by the interest I've seen lately , quite a few people having been making it!!! Inspired by a vintage quilt, and with lots of piecing, and grey & white low vloume backgrounds!!!!
Yesterday I found a new magazine at my local stationery shop.
"quilty" fresh patchwork & modern quilts. ......
A magazine devoted towards showing quilts with a stong emphasis towards the newer quilter.
And, I guess, the more modern quilter?!?!?!??! There was a good article about the pros & cons of joining a guild.......one awful experience can be enough to put anyone off, but I must say politics & clickiness aside, being with like minded quilters is always refeshing & inspirational.
I have also been catching up with other blogs this weekend....... http://littleislandquilting.blogspot.co.nz/
She entered into the QuiltCon competition &, on reading the judges critque comments she recieved, I think this is why people are v.reluctant to enter their quilts in judged shows. Check out her blog.
Anyway, no sewing for me this coming week - I have a hair appointment / then dentist appointment/ then doc appointment / and , of course, have to go to work too !!! (4 morning shifts this week !) (& that means getting up at 5:45am !!!)
