With a little clash of pattern and some strong colours to stand out amongst the others … this little quilt top is done. The finished size is 126 x 162cm (49" x 63").
I've had Brigitte Giblin's "Feathering the Nest 2" book for ages now, the quilts are delightful. Her designs are inspired by vintage quilts, with a little more colour here & there.
'Quilt dos a dos' is Brigitte's back to back quilt. The front is a scrappy combo of hourglasses, HSTs and squares and the back is the strippy quilt. They must be the easiest quilts in her book! And just perfect for what I feel like sewing at present.
I decided to make the strippy quilt using an eclectic mix of fabrics from my baskets, including Liberty, checks, Kaffe, and anything else that I thought would create depth and interest. And with those sashing pieces cut in long strips, I’m hoping it will look like some wild striped wallpaper, adding to the handmade vintage feel.
Until next time, Linda
