This quilt is going to look stunning – I just know it. The challenge is getting from the ‘bits all over the floor’ stage to the ‘oh isn’t it stunning’ stage – remember how much Chinese brocade frays!
I now have 3 wonderful cushion covers – samples of how I might put the quilt together. This is the complete opposite to how I would usually work. Usually the whole thing would have been thought through, all the problems anticipated and solved and the completed quilt pictured in my mind – not this time.
This is perhaps I favour – one rectangle and 2 squares forming a bigger square arranged in a random fashion. When I assemble the larger square, I can trim it so they together well and as the layers will be tied rather than sewn, I can disguise and mismatched corners.
Or I might do something completely different – I’m going to consult the intended recipient.
