Quilts that bring us pleasure...

I would like to extend a very big thank you to Sandra for coming out of retirement to travel from Queensland where she now lives, to teach the 12 Fat Quarter Quilt here for 2 days. Boy, did we keep her running around!!
I just love to see how different fabric choices make a totally different quilt with this pattern.

This one is made using the Symphony range of fabric (we don't have much left now).
The Intrigue range (above) is only $15 per metre.

These pinks are from lots of ranges - all circa 1800s.
William Morris fabrics were really popular for these quilts because you don't cut the large motifs into tiny pieces.
Even those are strikingly different - with 40 William Morris fabrics to choose from, each person chose 12 to reflect their own tastes.The quilt below is made using fabric that had only been in the shop for 3 days!!
Read more about the Folklorica fabrics in a previous blog post.
All participants worked really hard to complete most of their quilt tops. There are only a few borders left to add before quilting and binding! YAY!!
