October here I come!
Now that my son is happily married to his lovely girl, and all the bunting is packed up ready for the next time(?) I am able to get on with the commission for October. Another beautiful Liberty colour wash quilt. I lit the fire in my stove yesterday, the 1st of October, turned on all the bright lights and some good music and began the task of ironing, laying out and pinning the three layers of quilt. Only this time, there are four layers. I decided to use a double layer of the silk wadding to create a really luxurious feel. So forgive me if I cut this short – I’m off to begin the hand quilting. Days and days of it!
