I have been reading Lynne @ Lilly’s Quilts’ blog from her first posting and have found myself having a good laugh at most of the posts. One old post of hers (from October 2010) has inspired me to use some batiks that I had purchased at one of the quilt shows a few years ago but put to one side as they are not my cup of tea in terms of fabrics.
But since finding Lynne’s blog and joining the Brit Quilters group in Flickrland, I have seen some really nice quilts. So I have ideas of doing 9-patch blocks with the batiks and some plain colours (such as the lovely Kona solids range). I will need to wait to purchase more fabric as I reckon I have already spent alot on quilt books and fabrics.
Lime green and olive are really not me. But, isn’t the point of patchwork the trying of new designs, techniques and stepping outside the comfort zone?
