Oops. I started something new.
I'm finding this 'long distance' quilt is a simple way to tackle improvisational patchwork. It's a recent PDF pattern that I purchased and downloaded from thenextstitch in Australia, combining Courtney Cerruti's Long Distance fabric collection with AMH's creativity . . . love the way Anna crosses over between patchwork & art in her patterns.
I've cut out all the fabric choices for my first column, trying to make this scrappy and yet cohesive at the same time. It's ended up longer than my design wall, but you can see where I'm heading, and I think it's looking okay so far.
Loving adding these little bright patches. They float over the background of the whole quilt, and are hand stitched in place, leaving raw edges exposed for that yummy handmade touch.
Linking up my progress pics this week
with Kelly over here at myquiltinfatuation for 'needleandthreadThursday'.
Looks like Wendy from 'Wendy'squiltsandmore' is also having a play too with another of AMH's latest quilts, follow the link for a peep. It's the beautiful 'Portraits' quilt, showcasing fabrics from Chapter 2 of Conservatory by Courtney Cerruti @ccerruti , Nathalie Lete @nathalie_lete and Anna Maria Horner @annamariahorner .
