Love to Cherish – A Garden Romance – Quilt for “V”

A little while ago I was asked to make a quilt for an adorable girl (lady) “V” who I know from work.    A daunting task for me – as I usually only make items for the family, and believe it or not – actually lack confidence in my work and craft.  However after much conversation, consultation and research a design and colour scheme was finalised this week.  I was given a brief of “anything I choose to make will be Loved & Cherished” However even with so much confidence placed in my skills, I was very overwhelmed.  So after researching the likes/colour scheme of the owner to be – Renoir/Degas, and to go on a Black Couch – So I settled on a collection from the Hoffman Range.  Lovely colours which reflect the artists and their gardens.

The fabrics will be sashed by a lovely black 100% cotton,  I have  cut out the main pieces, now to sew. and there is a gorgeous border to be added.  More will be revealed once the main section has been sewn.

  1. Thanks Claire, actually the MOTH assisted in the choice of fabrics along with the lovely ladies at our local P&Q shop. So many wonderful colours to choose from, and the greens are my favourite – which will surprise everyone who knows how partial I am to Pink – perhaps Green is the new PINK – LOL
