I’ve started using my Easter indulgence thanks to a book challenge that I read about here. Jenny of Elefantz is, like me a self-taught quilter and stitcher and she thought it would be a good challenge to work through the Dolly quilts in Sarah Fielke's new book - Quilting from little things.
The first Dolly quilt is called Diamond Chips and will be about 12” square, I’m not going to make mine into a little quilt but rather, will use each finished “quilt” as a block for a sampler quilt which will be done by the quilt as you go method. I still have to make three more of these blocks and join them up before I need to think about the quilting.
Some lovely fabric arrived in the mail today, all the way from South Africa – a thankyou for some magazines I sent to Susan a little while ago. The blue fabric on the LHS is actually double-sided, the green next to it is the reverse side. Rather than putting it away with my stash I’ve left it out so I can look at it and get some inspiration for a future creation, thanks so much Susan, they are really lovely and unusual fabrics.
