These six cross stich flowers, done on a nice fine embroidery linen, have been sitting in my bottom drawer for 3 or 4 years. I wanted to put them in a quilt but thought the blocks could easily just look like white blobs dumped down on a quilt. But when I saw Back Home Again by Wilmington Prints, with its soft rural scenes I started to get enthusiastic, with the following result.
Also included are three fabrics from Luna Notte from Moda and other bits and pieces I already had.
Recently I had seen an image of this square and diamond layout- I think it was a free pattern in one of the newsletters I subscribe to. But now I can't find it and so can't give my thanks. The sample was done in more contrasty fabrics and looked quite different.
I have really enjoyed putting this quilt together. They really are what I consider "my colours" - nice and soft. But I have had a hard time as I have been reading David Nicholls' "One Day", so at times it has been a real struggle trying to decide which one I wanted to do most ! But mostly the quilt won out !
