Bloggers quilt festival

 I thought I'd like to take part in Amys quilt festival
so I've decided to enter my dappled days
flowering snowball quilt
into the two colour catagory
found here
 This is an English paper pieced quilt
which I appliqued onto the polka dot backing
and learnt how to free motion quilt for the first time.
 The main grey fabrics are from sweetwater 
and the backing was an old sheet.
 I would say it's almost a double quilt
though we have used it this winter on our kingsize bed.
 I had considered hand stitching with perle
but wanted to attempt some fmq...
I may well add to it one day
but for now I'm just enjoying the subtleties of  the restricted palette.
