………when I talked about this?
Well the magazine is out – but guess what – the person who was writing the article left and the person who completed the article put the story of the quilt I worked on with pictures of another quilt! Oh dash. So if you have read this article you may have been puzzled. I’d like to share with you some photos of the quilt which should have gone with the article.
The Butterfly Garden
This is the block that started the whole quilt inspiration:
Sharon does the most amazing candle wicking and beading:
She stitches her blocks on unwashed calico sandwiched up with puffy thick batting and butter muslin. After stitching she throws the blocks into the washing machine to crinkle and puff them. The blocks are about 20” square. She wanted them sewn together without sashing and very lightly quilted. This is a HUGE quilt. I cant remember the measurements.I do remember it was pretty challenging to put together! To quilt it another layer of calico had to be added.
The story of this quilt is in the Vol 20 No 11 issue of Australian Patchwork and Quilting.
