I had chosen the fabrics with wine motifs that I had been collecting . There are corks, wine labels, wine bottles, corkscrews, grapes, grape vines and a few white FQ's added. I did not want to purchase any more fabric (remember the post about frugality a few weeks ago?) so I have attempted to use 4 different patterns that worked out with only the fabric I had on hand. None pleased me. A meter and a half of the cork, a meter and half of the black background with wine bottles; a few skinny quarters of some of the wine prints and a FQ of another wine print.
Finally I visited Bonnie at Quiltville for inspiration. She is always a great inspiration and so I thought I would work off her StripTwist pattern. It is great to look at as it uses lights and dark to create the illusion of movement and blocks set on point.
I am happy with the project.
I still needed to complete it in a few days so I had to quilt it up quickly. I chose a meandering hearts pattern for the main body of the pattern and a vine of leaves for the borders.
What do you think? I hope it raises some good funds for the Grace Donnelly Women's Pavilion.
I would throw along the back of my couch!
I am still collecting comments to draw for a gift from me. I would like to send someone a fabric postcard so please leave me a comment. I will wait until the counter reached 20,500 before I randomly draw a name.
Kathy, I named this one "Cork or Twist top?".
