A running-late entry to the 2012 Blogger's Quilt Festival.
I'm afraid this one remains unfinished as I'm trying to gather up the stamina required to (a) hand baste it ready for (b) hand quilting it to within an inch of its life. Eek! But it must happen soon because I had planned that this would be my winter sofa project!
I had a huge amount of fun making this quilt top. The scrappy leaves medallion is like a walk-through my fabric stash. I was worried when I embarked on this that I didn't have enough fabric to achieve a scrappy look. But even though some of the fabrics appear multiple times, I think it still looks scrappy, yet unified.
Likewise the tab border. Somehow I managed to scrape together around 200 squares of fabric to make the tabs (I can't remember the exact number now!)
And finally, let me recommend this quilt to you - it was a delight to make! And surprisingly fast!
Pattern - Whirligig from Sarah Fielke's Quilting
Background fabric - American Jane Pindot in taupe
Setting triangles - from Loulouthi by Anna Maria Horner
