New Beginnings

Oh not me.  I have started a new family quilt.  It is going to consist of 9 aplique panels, framed, and set into sashing - colours yet to be determined. lol.
As I have nothing ready for Handmade Monday I am using what panels already completed as my offering.  They are all hand sewn and my own design from my own hand made templates.  I tend to start a quilt with no definite idea of where it is going making it up as I go along. 
This is quite similar as I don't know what a panel is going to look like until I sit down to make it and I have no idea what colours the frames and sashing will be until  I have completed all the panels and lay them out.  Then I wait for inspiration - can take some time as I am not the most imaginative person about I can tell you. lol.

These are the four panels already prepared:-

I am a rotten photographer, the colours are not shown to be as vibrant as in real life but,  hey ho, you will get the idea.

Now pop along to  and see all the other lovely stuff on offer.  You won't regret it I can assure you.


  1. The colour combinations are great, you've a real eye for that. And the designs are clean and simple just what I like.

  2. Carol, email me your details - I just need your email addy and blog link (which I can do myself!) to link you up x

  3. By the way, the panels are superb and - let's face it - we couldn't expect a finished quilt every week, now, could we?! I am looking forward to seeing the finished quilt though!

    1. i envy you the ability to make quilts :) i'm looking forward to seeing the end result!

  4. What gorgeous bright colours - bet the finished quilt will be stunning. Look forward to seeing it. Hope you have a good week.

  5. So bright and happy, will look wonderful finished on a bed

  6. I really wish I could sew, this quilt is going to look great when finished, those panels alone prove it. Can't wait to see the finished result. x

  7. Looking forward to seeing the finished result. I work a bit like you - creations just seem to evolve!
