The latest Down Under Quilts arrived this week and I was thrilled to see that my quilt Delicious was on the cover. Always gives my a thrill to see my work in print but to have it on a cover is wonderfully special.
This quilt was the result of an accident when I was looking to create something yummy out of some boring fabric. A whole armful of dull fabric was thrown in the same bucket and out came a wonderful set ranging from green to russet brown. Wish I could remember what the original colours were and what colour I dyed them in. It was a happy accident and some of the resulting colours were used in this quilt.
I also used thin strips of a painted piece of fabric to add that bit of zing. It is one of the simplest designs I have done. I will post a full picture of the quilt once I get a decent one.
