Twilight Pond fabric

Patchwork Progress

A bit like Pilgrim’s Progress I think; trudging along carrying a bundle! I’ve been doing a bit more to my quilt and then had to stop realising that I wasn’t sure where these colours would fit in. So I laid the whole thing out and worked out where the large strip I’d done would fit into the rest of the quilt (there is one hexie that needs taking out as it just looks weird) and started sewing it together just to make sure I didn’t lose track of it again. I like the back of the quilt with all the lose bits of patches – it’s quite decorative. I have this gorgeous fabric called “Twilight Pond” which I was going to use as a curtain for the caravan but I think I will use it as the quilt backing instead. I love the colour combination.

Hey, I'm a textile artist based in the UK. I like playing around with fabric paint, stitching both hand and machine embroidery and I have far too many sequins. I'm inspired by nature, its mysteries, subtleties, delights and complexities. The outer natural world has its counterpart in the inner spiritual world and I am also inspired by folklore, poetry, fairytales, stories of long ago when the spirits of nature seemed less shy than they do today, as well as my own shamanic journeys into the dreamland.

      Hi Rachel, no it’s not finished yet…it’s a personal project and so other things are taking priority. It is the kind of thing that I pick up and put down when I feel like it so it will get finished, when it gets finished! 🙂 I’m glad you like it. Playing with the colours is certainly fun.
