my favourite quilt

 When Mary gave a shout for us to share our own favourite quilts
how could I resist?
My favourite quilt was made with a multitude of fabrics
that I scoured the earth for...nothing special.
Remember
it's not what you have but what you do with it!
 I am yet to beat my 'summer of love' quilt.
This quilt was a labour of love.
It was hand pieced before I 'joined' the online quilt world
I was very much alone for a long time.
I think the beauty in this quilt comes from the 
crazy mix of patterns and colours
which look haphazard but were all chosen to balance each other,
the beauty also comes from a mind not addled by online pressures.
I know we've all seen this quilt before
but I dont mind rolling it out again
as long as you dont!
Why not join in Marys link party
with your fav?

  6. Very apt comments about sewing alone, but then online community really does bring pressure and expectations! Your quilt is beautiful.

  17. Wow, what a beauty! Hand sewn too, amazing. I always feel like a 'proper' quilter when I hand sew a quilt, like the good old days when random scraps made something beautiful. Even though I adore my machine!! It's definitely a different feeling when you paper piece. Gorgeous work.
