bohemian on point

This new project is going to be a real combination of colours & fabrics from some quilts I've seen over on instagram. The idea started with a pattern I downloaded, fourteen on point from Hunters Design Studio.
I'm changing things a little and using a scrappy fabric selection from my stash rather than just the 14 fat 1/4s suggested in the pattern. You know me, I do love a scrappy combo.
The mish mash of colours and fabrics all give the larger florals a chance to shine. Here's a few progress photos . . .





On one block I had to piece together a favourite fabric to get the effect I wanted. And then I added some boho embroidery. I used embroidery floss, as I wanted my stitches to be more noticeable (hopefully) than the joining seam.









Any more weekend sewing came to a grinding halt today . . . 
I had a little helper visiting . . .


Linking up with Wendy for this weekend's 'peacock party' here 
and with Cynthia for 'oh scrap' here

Until next time, Linda

  2. I love your latest quilt Linda! Do any of the quilts on IG have names or tags. I'd love to see what inspired this lovely creation! I am also taken with not only your sweet little grandbaby, but the size of that stash!!! Those baskets look full to overflowing!

  12. He certainly looks happy to be sorting all your fabrics! Lovely mix of fabrics Linda, love those florals. I have this pattern in my folder on the cutting table, my plan (at the moment) is to use the new Shannon Newlin fabrics for this one.
