I’m off to the post office to mail my quilt up to Kaleidoscope who will be at the Festival of Quilts in Birmingham this August. So even though I will not be able to make it myself this year my quilt will be able to enjoy it! And I know my quilt will be in good hands, as I’ve known Susan and her Mum for ages from all the shows that they do with their great books and fabrics. When I started out with my first book, they were so supportive, which really meant a lot!
This quilt is the Improved 9-patch block, and is so easy , but so effective as a showcase for scraps!
I hand quilted it in the all over pattern called ‘wine glass’ or ‘tea cup’.
I do love these all over quilting designs, yet not often seen today. It’s a shame as they are so easy and quick to quilt!
