This weekend I decided to challenge myself to do a quiet quilt. I predominantly use bright colours and fabrics in my quilts so this would be an interesting creative step for me. I was inspired by a great quilt I saw at Red Pepper Quilts (another Aussie).
First step was to see what white/cream based fabrics I had in my stash. I surprisingly had a lot to choose from, including some fabulous Heather Ross and wonderful Aneela Hoey.
I decided on 4 inch squares for my quilt, and to focus on giving the quilt a scrappy “eye spy” feel… so lots of fun objects in amongst the dots etc.
I must admit I struggled a little with laying out the blocks. I found it hard to focus on the flow of the quilt with everything being so low intensity. This is what I ended up with.
Next step quilting, then binding then off to Project Linus.
