I discovered about eleven blocks in my linen press - my repro of The Wedding Quilt? unfinished and they would be about twelve years old. Here's my favourite block! It is all hand pieced and I must say I'm really delighted with the accuracy I achieved - the strawberry fabric is my favourite fabric of all times - thank you Patchwork on Stoneleigh who have now sadly closed their doors - correct me if I am wrong, but to my way of thinking they were the first shop in Australia to specialize in selling antique reproduction fabics only.
It is a gorgeous quilt - somewhere in my linen press I have lots of details about the original and I know a lot of you repro girls will be able to fill you in a bit further! It is one of my quilts where I stitched like crazy then ran out of steam. I really like the above four blocks, too - I don't have the desire to finish the quilt and the four blocks together don't look right as the strawberry one seems larger - optical illusion, I think - could I make a small quilt from them! - I could make a nice border - please comment if you have any ideas!
So lovely to be back chatting - I must admit I have thought long and hard about continuing blogging - now I'm back I'll try to be good, God willing! Ooooh, the Postie has delivered since I started this Post - it will be some gorgeous modern fabric - I'm going to tease myself and put on another load of washing and also a pot roast for tonight's dinner before I open the parcel!
