My love of craft began many years ago when visiting my grandmas during the school holidays as they were always doing sewing, knitting and crocheting.
When my Grandma Joan passed away a few years ago at 91 years of age, I was given much of her crafting stash, including this pretty bundle of solids which I am now making into a quilt - actually both of my Grandmas were named Joan so this will be made in memory of the two of them.For this special quilt, I am using the Norway pattern by Thimbleblossoms as I happen to have 9 solids in this bundle.
I recently made a mini Norway quilt to try out this pattern and it was quite easy to do - I did have a wee bit of trouble with the borders in the mini but luckily they aren't needed in the full quilt design :)
I am using this Denyse Schmidt Piccadilly fabric for the backing and I think both of my Grandmas would approve of the pretty floral print. I also have some pink shot cotton for the binding, along with a creamy solid and a chocolatey brown for the accent colour.
I have already made the first block which only took a couple of hours to sew.
And I have all of the rest of the fabrics cut out and ready to sew whenever I can get a little bit of sewing time...
