Back in late May I received some fabric from
|look at that cute red door!|
I was particularly drawn to the black, white and grey
range called Illustrations 2, and began planning!
I knew I wanted to feature the terrace houses,
so I carefully cut them out and added one inch red
borders onto two sides of each one.
I also knew I wanted to keep the prints large, to
show them off properly!
So I chose a four inch by four and half inch block to
join everything together.
I had ten 'whole' terrace houses,
but couldn't quite make it work....
So I found the scraps I had left would allow me to
'cobble' together one more terrace section,
with a whole red strip to bring it up
to the required size.
Of course, cobbles are also used to pave roads,
so the name is quite appropriate, don't you think?
I have used the rest of the fat quarters to piece a
It finishes at lap size = 42" X 53"
I am looking forward to quilting this one.
