My new year starts today

two weeks of rest and relaxation and I am ready to face the world again.  Its been an amazingly fruitful time, as being away from my own environment have felt free of the normal daily burdens that can sometimes reign in the creative process.  Towards the end of last year and rather by accident I stumbled into the area of quilt making: making several as christmas presents was quite enthralling. The colour mixes one can achieve is so magical.  Being a complete novice and going totally solo with it I seemed to be making it up as I go along !   The quilts so far have just been throw size, but larger bed quilts beckon,  although at the moment they do feel rather daunting, not from the piecing side of things, but from the quilting aspect.    I can see that I may end up with lots of quilted top pieces and not attempting the quilting.  Guess I could always send them away to be quilted

I would like to share this video which I have found  on the Contemporary fabrics blog.  It’s a catwalk show with designers piecing together patterned fabrics.  I found this really inspiring, hope you do too…………………..

So much to say but have to get on with the day job,  adios folks, have a great day
