Today I will show you my red quilt (the one for our TV-room). It is hand-sewed (apart from the borders) and hand-quilted. I got the model from an "Australian Patchwork and Quilting" magazine. It is a scrap quilt and my motto for scrap quilts being "if no ugly fabrics then no interesting", there are some very ugly fabrics in it. Some bed linen and some aprons from my MIL made their way into this quilt as well. The border is a home dyed damask table cloth a friend gave me.
The sampler blocks are for my actual patchwork course. They are 12" x 12"( which I think is huge !).Some are machine-appliquéed. They will each get a narrow frame of blue fabric and be quilted-as-you-go.
I wish you all a nice week-end. Here it seems that winter has come back so it will be a cosy time with some hand-quilting!
