And Exhale!

Phew!  I am so pleased my copy of Love Patchwork and Quilting finally arrived, 
it was killing me seeing everyone get theirs, knowing some of my quilting was in this issue


another of Katy's masterpieces!


so in order to mull it over for a while, whilst I did other quilts, 
I hung it in my studio where we could eye each other up, and get acquainted



Especially when the brief is a quick all over!


You see, sometimes quilts just don't want to be given the simple all over treatment,
they call out for something else, something more!

this was the first sneak peak I sent to Katy to let her know I'd gone a bit off piste again!


and then I just went for it!


I do like to take a little inspiration from the designs in the fabrics, 
and this was no exception


Fabrics used in this quilt were Safari Moon by Frances Newcombe for Art Gallery Fabrics
I loved them so much I had to go out and buy myself some straight away!
In fact, I've told Katy millions of times, I love this quilt!

so now the dilemma, do I make my own version of this quilt?

I LOVE this quilt! You were so right to quilt it as you did. Now I want to make one, except I don't think my skills are up to quilting it like you did :).

I am going to have to make a quilt top just so I can have some of your quilting. That is beautiful. Of course you will make your own version :)

Beautiful quilting and of course you make one for you too. It is a fun take on an irish chain sort of pattern, just simple and beautiful.
