Young and Hip
Another guild piece ready to leave my home. I loved the large scale floral - graphic black & white sketched flowers with orange, yellow and pink. The best pattern for a quick quilt is one with half plain blocks, similar to the marquee quilts- get those cut & you can tell yourself you're half way done!! the pieced blocks were done in stack & whack style with solid yellow, black & white. The fossil fern fabric in the unusual colour combination was perfect. Addition of some funky black & white prints helps keep it fresh. I messed up on the borders - I thought they were going all the way around like more traditional borders but didn't make them long enough to mitre. I quite like how it turned out. I think it will be a great quilt for a girl or young woman. I'm taking it back to the guild to find a back & a quilter to finish it. Any volunteers??
