I had a lovely morning at my local patchwork group yesterday....and when Penny laid out her beautiful Christmas quilt on the floor, I just had to take this photo...
Just look at all that beautiful intricate work...Log cabins with appliqued scrolls through them...Compass blocks big and small, with fine points on them...just beautiful and the colours...amazing!
Penny is hand-quilting this quilt...she said it was a bit of a struggle working on this quilt...but I must say, I'm glad she kept going with it...it was all worth it!
Here's Desa. laying out her blocks for observation...what a great scrap quilt this one is...Desa said she'll add a red border and red corner stones with a sand coloured sashing..
I always think it's a great idea that before you start to piece them together... to lay out your blocks on the floor or design wall and take a photo of them....put them up on your computer and see where you might need to make changes to the layout...it's amazing how much more you seem to see in that perspective..
Have a great day...♥
