Earlier this month, Kiera, of Vanella Road Creations decided to organise a mini Quilt-A-Long . . . and I, of course, was tempted to join in unofficially (I don’t have a FB account, so I was just following on her blog).
Clear instructions were given for fabric needed, sizes of pieces to cut and away we went. Now the actual QAL was to make a mini quilt but I wasn’t really sure what I would do with a mini quilt. I therefore increased the number of blocks, and made something bigger.
It was the ideal opportunity to use some fabrics I had received from Avis at Christmas
Two lovely purples and two teal-greens . . . I added a fifth fabric, “Wickerweave” by Andover for my background
And have a top measuring 34” x 45” so far. I chose the original lay-out that Kiera suggested: “Which way?” . . . I love how all the purples point in one directions and the teals in the other. Next step will be to add a border before I set to quilting and finishing off . . . but that will be for another day.
