and back, below:
This quilt was begun in 2011, in one of Ferret's one-day "Speed Quilt" classes. It's a quilt-as-you-go quilt, with minimal quilting. I then reached an impasse with the colours I'd chosen. (This is actually the second speed quilt I made - the first (the third quilt I ever made) went to my niece abroad, unphotographed. Again, I shall have to remedy that. This was an attempt to recreate that quilt for memememe.
I adore the AMH innocent crush rose in the centre, but was concerned that the colour didn't link into the rest of the quilt. Hence the butterfly - which I think needs tilting a little - it's turned out a little too uniformly placed. It did take many months to arrive at this particular solution!
I outline quilted the central rose, which shows up nicely on the back (photo not uploading for some inscrutable to me reason).
The quilt then sat for years, whilst I auditioned bindings. And then, Architextures arrived, and everything fell into place.
And then the fudge, my favourite bit of this quilt. I was actually binding it (yes I was) when I noticed a slight lack of linen.... I hunted around in my fabrics (more auditioning) and this virtually fell at my feet.
And this one's a keeper!

Right, housework beckons (joke - it never does). My next UFO does though. And perhaps some reading up of HTML codes!
