46. Patchwork quilting (day 1)

Updated: Feb 16, 2019


There's something quite magical about patchwork. All the little scraps of fabric link to something else or mean something.



A couple of years ago I got really into sewing and I opened an etsy store and had a physical store for a week in Greenwich. I handpainted all my fabrics so when I closed the store I was left with loads of beautiful scraps with too much potential to just throw them away.


So I decided to spend 2 days helping them achieve their destiny in the form of a modern looking patchwork quilt.



INSPO:


So, day 1 involved choosing, cutting and laying out my fabrics and day 2 i'll stitch them. I selected a mix of florals and watercolours mainly in blue, green and pink and i'll assemble them in a random brick pattern.
