I fell in love with the Heirloom collection almost as soon as it came out, and bought a half-yard of my favourite colourway as soon as I could afford it. Possibly sooner than I could afford it, considering I was out of work.
The plan was always to make a big, simple quilt out of the fabric. I simply didn't want to cut down the bold colours into teeny-tiny squares - and I thought the big patterns would look better in big pieces.
So I started cutting the fabrics last Thursday night while over at Penny Poppleton's and it went faster than I expected!
Such bright, lovely fabrics in this collection! So richly sumptuous! I'm particularly enamoured of the magentas and purples, but the pale yellows provide much-needed contrast.
No blocks for this one, just big columns of fabric laid out and sewn together.
It's definitely going to be a quilt with personality...
