First up we have this beautiful selection of Anchor perle 8 cotton:
this seller on Ebay that's based in London.
Having all these colours around along with other patinbox style quilts I've seen on the blog-o-sphere (sorry I can't remember who did the wonderful one for her teenage son with the apple logo!), all these made me think that I wanted to try and make my own little version.
|My sketch for the quilt...|
Here it is a-waiting the sashing and border, which will be done in Kona solids Ash and then I think I'll get to work with the Perle 8 doing a simple design. Haven't figured out the design yet but there's time.
Can you spot which pattern is which?
Now I'm preparing to head to Vancouver in the morning for a working holiday, so will be forced to leave my quilting at home. Instead I'm taking some knitting which will be in time a lace shawl using this beautiful Jade Green yarn.
It took ages to wind it from the skein into a ball. At times like that I think perhaps I should experiment with having a yarn winder...
