First 20...

Have decided to post my blocks in groups of 20 to avoid boring everyone to death! It will also help me keep track of progress and breaks the project into manageable junks. So here is the first  20!

'Dear Angela'

Last night I went to my guild's business meeting for a talk by Angela Davis who has made a beautiful 'Dear Jane' quilt. It was really inspiring and great to hear about the maker's journey.












She also used Liberty Fabrics but made each block in a different one! That's maybe a step too far for me.

Using the 'quilt as you go'  method meant that the quilt was as beautiful on the back as the front.

Here's a close up of the blocks that shows the clever colour wash across the top.
