Reasons to be quilty!

Looking at all the lovely new fabrics from Moda in the shop I thought this Regent Street Lawn would make up into quilts very similar to the one I made below. This one was based on the Drunkard’d Path block and was very easy to do. I used hand-dyed fabrics in plain and multi colours with featured Liberty Lawn fabric but the lovely Regent Street lawns, which one could be forgiven for thinking¬† are Liberty Lawns,would be ideal for something along the same lines!

The Drunkard’s Path block isn’t difficult and by altering the size of the patches one can have fun creating a stunning quilt which has an updated modern look about it!

Using an attractive print like this gives the viewer the idea that the circle is complete with no joins but in actuality it is in four quarters thought the seams don’t stand out!

By varying the size of the blocks and using plain squares between them helps the pattern of the quilt to stand out and stipple quilting on the plain squares makes a strong statement.¬† The circle idea has been continued on the drunkard’s path blocks with quilted petals in each patch.

Using the Regent Street lawns and toning plains and batiks one could make a stunning quilt with lots of character.  A new project for 2015 perhaps?
