I finally decide to give the hand piecing a rest and get started on a new quilt that is in the Quiltmania magazine No 96. It is Marg Sampson George's Toile Medallion. I've been looking at it since I did the Jane Pizar workshop with Marg. and as I had just bought the feature fabric recently wanted to get going. The piece of secondhand fabric was filthy, but after several hand washes with wool mix and some Sard added, it came up beautifully and has really bright colours in it which include Double Pinks and a Chrome yellow.
So here is the centre.
The two ends attached
and now the sides.
There are several borders still to be made and attached but I'm happy with how it is coming along. Below is my Cyclamen. It has soo many flowers on it this year there is hardly enough room for them all to open. I think it must be all the cold weather we have had this Winter/Spring.
