I love Susan Smith's patterns, especially 'Stonefields' so I was very excited to learn of her new BOM 'The Rowdy Flat Library Quilt' It is a while since I did any appliqué, and as I have just finished a quilt, I feel more than justified in starting a new one!
Susan's inspiration was this black and white photo of an old Welsh Quilt
Of course Susan has changed it to suit her style, I think there will be five appliqué blocks and four pieced and then a border.
The pattern can be found on her website HERE
Susan is mailing the patterns without fabric each month, which makes it very economical, I have had enormous fun digging through my scrap boxes for the pieces. Blocks one and two are basted ready to stitch. I don't have enough of the focus fabric, so each of my centres will be different. I plan to embroider my initials and the year on the beekeeper block.
