Months and months ago I found this book at the opshop.
It's a great book with some awesome projects.
Like this cool dresden type block but with the red picked out.
and this real 1970 number took our eye and Shenleigh and I both were going to make it.
Mine never really got off the ground but Shenleigh has made a fantastic job of hers.
It's a vibrant cheerful quilt, full of colour and texture.
Shenleigh started with all patterned fabrics,
but quickly realised that she needed some solids for contrast.
Isn't it amazing? I love it.
I borrowed it for taking pictures to show you and then took it back.
Shenleigh is a local long-armed quilter in Christchurch
and does edge-to-edge quilting mainly.
I've had her quilt lots of quilts and I've always been very happy.
Someone asked me about her recently (sorry I can't remember who)
if you want her details, leave a comment on this post and I'll email you her cell number.
I hope she never gives it away because I love to look at it!!
Isn't it fantastic? I really love the idea of taking an older pattern
and working it with today's materials.
