Field of Flowers Postage Stamp Quilt by Pompom
Recently I've been gathering floral fabrics with a vague notion of putting together a quilt with a romantic floral theme, a field of flowers. This is what has happened in 4 days, my favourite - simple patchwork in a postage stamp design, the squares end up at 2 inches and there will be either 1024 or 1296 in the finished article depending on whether I stop at 64x64 inches or go on to 72x72 inches. The basis for this project was an Athill Range layer cake (which contains lots of washed out and chalky pinks, blues, lilac and grey/cream) I've had for ages and that's mixed with a variety of mostly Makower Flowers and 30's Playtime but I have included lots of other floral fabrics from my stash, too many to mention.
Most of the quilts I make are commissions, gifts or for charity so this is going to be a keeper, just for a wee change. As always with my quilts I'm having a great time mixing and matching fabrics to make up my 16 patch blocks then seeing how they all come together.
