However I have decided how to use my vintage fabrics in blues and whites which I have collected over the past few months. A very summery quilt which will serve to remind me of Cornwall and The Scilly Isles this year. The colours are reminiscent of the white sands, the agapanthus blossoms and the wonderful wide sea and sky - my Cornish Quilt. I have decided on a simple 16 patch block of medium blues and whites throughout which will be sashed by white linen. Eventually. I can only sit to do a block at a time occasionally.
I bought some Koh-I-Noor dye paints at the International Quilt Show at the N.E.C last weekend and they produce a nice confident colour ideal for journals. This little notebook has been set aside for seedheads which fascinate me.
I am saving seed ready for next year - both vegetables and plants and am finding some quotes to accompany little sketches.
