My other creative passion!

Well I am feeling a bit slack for not being here much over the last couple of weeks! I seem to have had a revival of my other creative passion. That being patchwork.

The quilt pictured below is a long term project that started when we travelled around Australia in 2007. My daughter (you can see her legs) went into 30 patchwork shops and picked out a fat quarter in each one. I then promised to make her a hand sewn quilt with it.

This quilt is no where near finished. I have made 120 diamonds and added the adjoining pink fabric to each one (all but three {I ran out of templates} - can you see them?). I am now up to the stage of working out how to join them together. As my daughter was only four when she chose the colours, they are quite different and difficult to put together.

I anticipate that this will take me another couple of years to actually get sewn together as shown above. Then I need to add more pink hexagons and a piano key border to it and finally quilt it. I will promise to show you more pictures of this, if I am still blogging in a couple of years.

I have also been doing swaps for convention, but I will not be revealing them until closer to convention.

Till next time, happy stamping...
