starting indigo quilt

I have been really busy last few days, including a workshop with Tiggy Rawling yesterday, but that will be another post, when I'll finish a project started at the workshop.


I have at last started working on the Indigo quilt. I have stitched together all the pieces, plus the wadding and the backing.
I don't have a clear plan, but my intention is to cover each section in some embroidery, Indian or some other form of ethnic stitching.

To make a start (a warm up), I have been playing with some stitches and mirrors.

  2. It looks great so far, but then I'm a BIG fan of indigo print fabrics. I will watch how it evolves, and best of luck with it. Time is rushing by so quickly these days. Oh, BTW, I love the daffodils in the header photo, sooooooooo pretty!!
