I bought these beautiful fabrics last Christmas. They are Rounneries by French General for Moda. I love the soft reds and faded browns. They have been sitting in there bag with a bar of French soap and every time I get them out to look at they smell divine.I have been looking at them regularly since January waiting for inspiration. I want to use them in my sitting room which is also my studio. ( remember this apartment is a Mouse House so has tiny proportions, every room is dual purpose.)
Following Pats progress on her crazy quilting http://patwintergatherings/ gave me the idea of Crazy Quilting .
I love to have some hand stitching with me when I sit on the beach and usually get lots more done during my summer expeditions than in the winter. Outdoor light is so good to stitch in.
So out came the fabrics once again and this time I have made the first of my cushions.
Here's the pieced fabrics, I have kept the pieces quite large so that I can enjoy the fabric designs.
Having collected some threads and trims I'm ready to start stitching.
I haven't done much Crazy patchwork before but it combines my love of hand stitching with a passion for fabrics so here goes. I need to get these done to give my room a makeover for next winter. These lovely colours will warm up a dreary English winter. I've started on the first seams keeping to the colour theme. I'm of for a long walk today and my stitching is coming with me so that I can sit on the beach and sew for an hour, I think I am suited to 'Crazy' quilting, I'll update you on my progress.
