Hello everyone! Many thanks to Sharon for allowing me to join the group. I have greatly enjoyed reading all the past blogs. The pictures and posts have been a source of great inspiration to me.
I have a great passion for applique (I loathe piecing!), and love old quilts and reproducing them. I also love chasing down the reproduction fabrics for my quilts, all of which is a bit of an anathema here in the UK! But with this quilt I am exploring new horizons, having been inspired by Edyta Sitar's quilts (Laundry Basket Quilts), where she mixes reproduction fabrics with batiks. Her quilts seem to take on a new dimension. So I decided to take up the challenge with her new fabric range, only problem is I am starting at the beginning where collecting batiks is now the challenge!
Above is my first block and my second should be finished by tonight - if all goes to plan!
