My 'Shanty Town' quilt ( aka Hillside Houses ) is finished ! A while back I followed the quilt along over at Pretty Little
Quilts, and made this fun quilt. It worked up quite fast having such big pieces and turned out a good size. Then it was out for a photo shoot
The addition of the purple was a conscious decision to 'woo' my daughter in law. It's going to be a house warming present when they move into their new house in September : )
I'm very pleased with this one. It's so cheery!
When I saw how Lorna
had quilted hers, I knew that's what I wanted. It gives it such great texture. I have Linda
to thank for that : )
The backing fabric is called Shanty Town and it's by Westminster Fibres. This was a fabric that I had looked at several times, but never thought I would use until...............
It is perfect.
With one quilt finished, it's surely time to start another one, or two. I was very pleased to receive a copy of the new Quiltmania magazine 'Simply Moderne'.
It's plug full of quilty inspiration
like hexagons -- my favourite shape ever
It's available at our local Chapters book store or by subscription.
Have yourself a lovely week end. I'm hoping to find time to sew : )
