Precuts

Fat Quarterly Ezine Issue 17 Precuts III is on sale today and there may just be a little something designed by me in there :) This is my Battenberg medallion quilt. I used the highly colourful Sewing Box by Gina Martin for this lap sized quilt. It's an extremely simple medallion quilt perfect for beginners :)
Now that this issue is available I can show you more detailed pictures of the Brit Print Girl medallion that I exhibited at Quilt and Stitch Village :) For this version of the quilt I scaled down the block sizes and added an extra 2 borders, one of half square triangles and another solid frame. This one finished up around 42" square.
All prints used in this quilt (except the binding which is Joel Dewberry) are screen printed here in Blighty by the crazily talented gals Karen Lewis, Lu Summers and Leanne Fanny.
Sometimes simple blocks are all that is necessary to make a fabric sing :)
I just love the way they all play together :)
I really enjoyed showcasing the fabulous creations of these "Brit Print Girls" and was particularly proud to have been able to show them off at Quilt and Stitch Village. I think we can safely say that I am not afraid pattern ;) Catch you soon x
