after working with the blocks again I realized why this became a ufo /wip
quilt. I wasn't happy that I used ecology cloth. This ecology cloth instantly gives your quilt that
antique look I love BUT it is very flimsy, thin, loosely weaved.
I know quite a few of you love this fabric. I am not sure I want to put all the work of appliqué and then hand quilt the quilt and the fabric won't last for many years. I am going to finish this quilt with out the appliquéd border as I had planned and just use it.
I will remake it using moda bella 9900-60 my favorite cream/white for backgrounds as originally planned at least then I know it will last for a long time.
Enjoying reading this new book by Gwen Marston
published by AQS
Interesting to read, love seeing all her hand quilting my favorite quilt in the book is the cover quilt!
NO patterns , just lots of inspiration for art style quilts.
I have been a huge Gwen fan for years!
If you read this book I would love to know what your thoughts are….
