are done and already pieced to the back ground fabric. I've chosen an aubergine with small orange stars from Kathy Doughty's new fabric line "A Wandering Mind", recently released by Leutenegger in Australia. I think it works beautifully. This choice came by chance as I was planning to use some beige linen. But when I photographed the blocks on an purple footstool outside on the balcony it occurred to me that it would work much better and would be "less safe" as well.
As this project is coming to an end, my friends and I have been discussing what to tackle next. We agreed that we wanted to do some applique and after literary looking at dozens of quilts we decided on this:
Auntie Green's Garden by Irene Blanck, based on a early Australian applique quilt. Lots and lots of work, but doing it together with two friends will surely help me stay focused. I can't wait to get started.
