It's not easy photographing something light and airy. The pink in this is very pink and the white very white. I had different intentions for the centre block (the first three pieces) and was just about to add some fabric from my a favourit mid-bue shirt when I saw this quilt.
I have always loved the look of washed out, almost bleached white quilts and since the chances of my ever finding one are limited I decided to make my own washed out and worn quilt using old clothes, pillow covers along with bright and brand new dressmaking scraps. Just like quilters always have.
I don't know where this top is actually headed. I'm using strips cut by hand and just sewing in the round. The white fabric is linen from a bias cut skirt and therfore the strips are not at all on the straight grain. I'm aiming for gentle wobbliness:)
On another happy note, I'm looking forward to some more colourful scrappy inspiration in the mail after winning this wonderful looking book. The good news is there are lots of other copies to be won (check out Janet's post for details).
