Colour Pop

I had happy mail today. My subscription copy of Love Patchwork & Quilting issue 33 arrived and this month there is a little project by yours truly in it.

 I had the great pleasure of working with Lecien's new 1000 colours solids range. The colours are beautifully saturated and really pop against a white background. Here's the professional shot from inside the magazine.

It's a simple tumbling blocks design  but the placement of colours makes it look a bit more complicated.I used a variegated Aurifil thread to straight line quilt a star design over the pieced section of the wall hanging to add a bit of texture. This is what it looks like from the back of the wall hanging.
I do love seeing a project in print :) Catch you soon x


  1. really awesome. Love the quilt.

  2. Lovely quilt and very effective use of colour. How did you find the Lecien fabrics to work with? I don't think I've seen them around, bit I will look out for them.


Lovely comments read with glee everyday.
