When I was at the FQR retreat a few weeks ago I came across the most beautiful quilt. It was being used as a tablecloth, which I thought was sacrilege, but we won’t go into that here. Each to their own. Enough to say that it was a real smasher of a quilt.
Needless to say I bought the book…
and here is the quilt …..
made by one of the founders of FQR, Brioni Greenberg.
Pretty drop-dead gorgeous, huh? I absolutely love this quilt.
And of course it set the old grey cells humming…..(this is where I get to the confession stage..)….you see, I have a bit of a long-standing problem. It looks like this….
Yeow. Not pretty….
And I really would like to use up some of these little itty squitty pieces of fabric before I move the the old people’s home and have to throw them all away…
So I ordered a lot of Kona charm squares. Really a LOT! And now that they have arrived I’m making a start.
I could be a while.
But it will be gorgeous when I get there.
Two down and about nine million to go.
I can recommend the book too – a little different (read: better) than your average quilt book – it has some absolutely gorgeous projects in it. Brioni is a talented lady!
Oh well, it will keep me out of mischief! (Did I say that it’s my day off and I’m supposed to be doing housework and shopping, hmmmm. It’s also my 20th wedding anniversary – so I don’t feel too bad cutting myself some slack!)
Here’s to faffing around with fiddly bits of bondaweb!
