Hope Valley Colour Brick Quilt
I first cut out the bricks and sashing (and a few besides) needed for a Colour Brick Quilt back in January and despite sewing a few rows of bricks together, I still had some rows to complete and all the sashing to add. The Precious QAL and the FAL has really inspired me though and today I've completed the top. (In between being distracted by music, The Grand National and WALL-E.) It is folded up neatly on the ironing board waiting for a trim. I'd originally thought I'd use more Hope Valley for the back, but I'm now thinking, having read the QAL instructions again, that the quilting might show up a lot better if the back is solid. So I may uses the extra bricks I have cut to make a vertical band and use some Klona (which I'd need to purchase) for the backing.
It feels so satisfying to have finished this and I can't wait to get the whole quilt finished. I am waiting on solid material before I can start the quilt I told you about yesterday. So I've spent this evening pouring over patterns on Moda Bakeshop and I've found a pattern for more precious fabric. But more on that another time. I think my sewing Mojo is back in the building folks and it's making me feel hopeful!
