My only complaint is Ms Fox did not photograph the entire bedcover, but only teased her readers with detailed shots of 12 of the blocks....many of which are on my list to reproduce ( as is much of the book's contents!)
The charming thing about many quilts featured in the book are the inscriptions. Many of the Eggleston blocks have delightful poems and sentiments inked or cross-stitched...My mind is pondering how to incorporate this notion somehow into my blocks.
The original Egglestone wreath block.
A perfect opportunity to test drive this nifty little gizmo... a 1/4" bias maker.
With these two blocks complete there are only 4 more to make to complete the main quilt top. Then it's on to designing the border!
It's Friday here in Sydney - a most glorious late winter morning, Spring is in the sir with Jasmine flowering madly on my boundary fence and a few early cherry blossoms starting to open. I have a day off today and am quilting with friends tomorrow so must away to do some preparation.
Hope your weekend includes some stitching!
