|This is one block of 9 identical, then there is a swagged border. Blocks are 25" so|
combined makes a very large quilt - even for me!
I hadn't really intended to use these fabrics for this project (does anybody actually plan things like this?), but with my day off sick with the kids last week, I bought the fabric on a whim, then looked at Ivory Springs post about applique and thought - why not - no reason I couldn't use these yummy fabrics with a contemporary influence, for a rather more traditional design. And a new project was born.
|A bit closer...|

Somehow I don't think I am going to complete nine of these blocks - but haven't decided exactly how it is going to pan out. Maybe do four blocks and then sashing and borders, or I could do one block as the central medallion, and work outwards from there. We shall all have to see what happens...
