I love the design for many reasons - one being that it's really simple, you can really see each of the fabrics used, but most of all - its WONKY!! This is good news for me as I hate straight lines, the harder I try to get things sewn up straight the more it looks squint!
I spent a while yesterday preparing all the fabric - cutting the squares 'wonky' and cutting the strips of the border fabric.
|Cutting all done!|
I began sewing the borders onto the squares this morning and did some more during nap time and here's my progress so far -
I spent ages in the fabric shop on Saturday trying to decide what to use for my border colour - the choices I had narrowed down were ivory, cream or silver/grey. In the end I chose the cream. It keeps it nice and light and contrasts so well with the colours in the 'Sunkissed' fabric range. I felt that the silver/grey was a little on the dark side for the quilt top but I might just use it for the backing. I haven't even begun to think about what to use for the binding. I think I'm going to end up in the fabric shop with my finished quilt top trying to decide!
