I started this quilt months ago when I wanted to make a quilt
using only two fabrics and one simple block.
This is a pale grey sketch and a vibrant Kaffe floral
and an easy half square triangle.
My friend Kate and I sat one afternoon and worked out nine
separate layouts for the blocks.
The thing was that half way through this project I got bored with it,
and then when I had pieced the nine blocks I really didn't like it.
It almost disappeared to the bottom of the pile.
However you know how I think even ugly quilts keep you warm,
so I decided to add a border. I found the blue Prints Charming fabric
at Spotlight and it is matched perfectly.
And then of course I loved it again!
I'm actually stoked how this one turned out.
It's fresh and modern looking and quite different to what I usually do.
I really really wish I hadn't promised to give it away now!
The moral of the story is, sometimes you have to get to the end of the process
to see how it all fits together!!
