The lovely Aneela came to the London Modern Quilt Guild meeting this Sunday and brought her Bloom quilt with her. It is even more gorgeous in person than it is on the interwebs, and that is saying something. After I tried to sneak it out of the meeting without her noticing (made very difficult because everyone else had the same idea), she very kindly offered to send me a copy of the pattern so that I could make one of my own. I’ve been humming and haaaing about a quilt for my bed for ages, and this is perfect. I love the way that you don’t lose any of the design in the bits that hang down over the sides. Also, you can make the background as big as you like, which is fantastic.
I’m going to dip into my Denyse Schmidt stash for this one, I think. I had a lovely time playing with fabric this morning when I should have been working. Once again I find myself wishing that sewing could pay the bills. In another life, maybe.
