New inspiration = new quilt

This afternoon, after I'd finally cleared up my sewing room, I knew it! The thing I'd wanted to do since the summer holidays last year ....: make a quilt of the two jelly rolls I'd bought in Munich: green & red in all hues.
The original pattern is called 'A walk in the park' and consists of pastels and white. I choose my own colours and I will call it 'A walk in the forest' (unless I come up with an even better name).

all the reds spread out on the kitchen table
trying to make perfect combinations
4 finished blocks
have now finished 6 blocks of 8"x8" which will be 7,5" finished and still a few to go (72). This means I can make a really big quilt! A really colourful one too!

And there's still a lot of homework to be done for my quilt class: my sampler has not been growing at all. And I'll have to work on that too.

Busy, busy, busy ...

till next time!


PS We had a wonderful party Saturday!


  1. Looking very good!! I started on the book by the way and it's a real page-turner. So when you're finished reading all the other stuff....
