Do you ever feel drawn to particular colours? I definitely do! Sometimes it's due to seeing a wonderful combination of colours in a fabric or flower or scene in Nature, that has me wanting to create with a similar colour palette.My latest project is directly inspired by the checkered garden block quilt (shown above) that I made a couple of years ago. I completely adore all those warm colours together and the desire to work with this palette again over took me this autumn.
Fortunately, plenty of scraps from making this quilt meant that I could dive back into playing with those warm, spicy colours for some more scrappy block making. I chose to use the fabrics with small scale prints for these small scrappy blocks.
|Just enough space in front of the dining and living room windows for my sewing table and machines (after moving the dining room table and relocating some chairs). This will be my sewing space until our next move.|

Corduroy in a rich plum colour has been selected for the pillow back, now to decide on whether I will add piping and a zipper to finish.
