I have made great progress on a couple of my old projects ...
Another block completed for Lucy's River Terrace, making 2 so far
and I met my end of January deadline - Down the Rabbit Hole is a quilt top!! I need some help to take photos and it deserves a post of it's own :) but the top is done!
I was going to just back this and make it a coverlet, but now I am thinking it needs to be quilted?
Can anyone recommend a good lightweight wadding/batting for a summer quilt?
I want to make a Nordic inspired quilt, as I lived in Stavanger Norway for nearly 3 years and love all things Scandinavian, especially the painted Swedish Dale Horses
I did a quick colour sketch when Sarah released the fabric requirements.
My background is an off white on white hearts fabric (9109 Essential Hearts by Makower)
The rest of the red, white & Blue fabrics are from a FQ bundle of Nordic Stitches by Wenche Wolff Hatling for Moda Fabrics that I got in the Black Friday Sales. The appliqué blocks have triangle corners, to form a second design with the pieced blocks. I want to use this iced blue.
I have started thinking about the fabrics I want for the appliqué Tulip
I like it but it is a little dull?
I am now thinking that I need to add a little yellow/green like the painted horses - what do you think? just a little on some of the appliqué blocks to avoid everything being too matchy matchy?
I think I like this a lot more :) I will think about it for a day or two, in the meantime I will pull out another oldie - 'Happy Days' and carry on with my hand quilting (Can you see my halo shining 🤣)
