How yummy are these fabrics??
I bought them as a kit from the cottage quilt works. I love how all of the colours work so well together, and the way some pieces of fabric I might not have chosen on my own, seem so necessary to really make it sing.
I knew I loved the fabric, and the pattern included was “french market medallion“, which I thought was beautiful, but possibly beyond my skill level. (Having never completed a quilt before!) so I decided to start with the circles, and possibly just make a quilt out of that block, or if they were too hard to be enjoyable, to use the fabric for a more simple design of my own.
But, lo and behold, I am really enjoying those circles! So much so that last weekend…
… I had a go at the centre appliqué!! Yes! The whole quilt is going ahead. I feel very excited about it.
I will do a post on the sneaky cheat-y method of appliqué I used soon!
