In January I used the colours and expected to do so again in February but I got thinking about the question.
‘What do I remember?’ Well there are lots of things I remember but strangely I started thinking of the Liberty bodices that my mother used to make me wear. Silly thing to base a quilt on but you have to start somewhere.
Using cream calico, I added panels, tucks and inserted bits of lace (I wasn’t really posh enough to have lace on mine but when I did a search on the Internet there were some). Very elegant, like this one.
I then cut my journal piece up and re-stitched it, did a little quilting, pin tucking and then added a few buttons, vintage and modern. I haven't used binding on this one, which is a real change for me, I thought I would have a go at bagging it. Not too sure about it but it will do.
And as this is a short post I will add a couple of detail photo's of it, haven't thought of a name yet.
I like it and it’s a few more techniques that I haven’t done before so that’s good. The trouble is I haven’t plotted its progress as promised to Sharon for the second month. I did start and finish in one day so maybe I can be excused again !!!
