Some time ago Helen put out a call for stitchers to participate in a lovely quilt project..... lots of people recieved predrawn blocks and thread to make up the stitcheries....
The blocks need to be sewn into a quilt so I have been receiving lots of lovely parcels in the post....
have a look:
They are beautifully stitched using Helen's special Hugs n Kisses hand dyed thread.
I have several ideas on putting these together..... whilst wanting to do something pretty special I also would like to make the stitcheries the focal points in the quilt.....
Most of the stitcheries arrived with red fabrics to be used to finish the quilt:
A) a disappearing 9 patch.....
You need to pretend these blues are a range of dark and medium reds.....
with the stitcheries I have received plus some sashing around the edge
approx - 40" x 57"
B) add some pinwheels
and get a bigger quilt 57" square
C) with a few more pinwheels in there
maybe 57" x 75"
(there would be a wider range of reds used)
please use your imagination to correct the double up in the centre
this would make up to be a 45" square (including a sashing edge)
borders are also great
alternating dark with medium reds
to make a 50" square quilt
E) single borders
F) double borders
I would really love your thoughts on this..... I am nervous about working with other peoples beautiful stitcheries..... personally I think any of these would work but I'd love to hear your honest opinions....
