It must be summer,

because my blue indigo "play cloth" has made it outside again, and this happens only in summer.

Those of you who have followed my blog for some time, might remember this one. 
For my new followers - this is my summer project, which I "play with" only in summer, outside, in our lovely small garden. For the rest of the year it rests in its project box, right at the bottom of the pile.

What is it all about? It is a quilt with a difference. 
The background is made from indigo dyed fabrics, of various sizes, and the idea is to fill each block with something different - be it embroidery, patchwork, applique.....
I have also included embroideries done by women from Tambani Project and Afghanistan Inspiration Project.
I got the inspiration for the quilt after a workshop with Tiggy Rawling some years ago. Most of the background fabrics came from her also.

This is how it looks so far - there are still many empty spaces to fill.

This afternoon I made some circles,

 and another block is finished.


It looks like the Blogger has yet to sort out the problem with emails.
So if you would like to leave a comment on my blog and want to know what my answer is, please tick the box "notify me" before you post your comment, 
because the comment box is the only way I can answer your comments for the time being. 
Thank you.

  1. We are now in winter so it is lovely seeing your summer project. So many beautiful and interesting blocks.

  2. Hi Radka. Good to see your summer project out again, I love your circles. No need to reply. xx

  3. Hello, Radka - I finally found your blog! I don't know why I couldn't get here before, but even though I spend a lot of time on my computer, it still befuddles me, so I blame only my lack of technical skills! But I wanted you to know that I've just been reading many of your older posts, and I'm overwhelmed at your stitching talent and at all the beautiful photographs of flowers and National Trust houses. What a fun and interesting blog - I'm so looking forward to seeing more!

  4. Hello, Radka - I've been trying to leave a comment on your blog, but so far haven't succeeded; I'm trying again. I'm not very "computer literate" so it's probably my own fault! I've been reading some of your older posts and wanted to let you know how very much I enjoyed seeing your beautiful "stitching" and the wonderful photos of the National Trust houses. I think your summer project, the blue indigo play cloth, is a gorgeously creative piece! I'm looking forward to seeing your future posts.

    1. Hello Marjorie and welcome to my blog! Both of your lovely comments came through OK. There seems to be a problem with comments notifications at the moment, so no, it is not you :-)
      I am pleased that you found my blog and I look forward seeing you here again.
