Don't leave me!
I seem to have kept mentioning Zebra-girl's quilt, but never actually revealing anything...that's perhaps because I'm a little confused. Originally I'd wanted to make the entire quilt from the top fabric in this photo and a plain blue voile...but I could only get my paws on one panel's worth of the the loveliness, so other fabrics have been drafted in to pad it out. First I added some Pastry Line to the mix in 'saffron' and 'water', as these are the colours that Zebra-girl wants to be the focus of the quilt...but then I've kept on playing with adding other prints too because I'm feeling overwhelmed by creating a quilt that is so centred around a fabric that is striped...so many lines to match up, so many imperfections to be revealed.
In this mix (above) there's some Little Honey in Gold and some plain blue voile too.
