I've got into a Brenda Papadakis workshop at Quilts in the Barn - Yay me!
I started collecting blue Liberty fabrics last year with the idea of one day making a Dear Jane quilt.
I was inspired by this quilt made by Julianne who has kindly let me post the following pics from her blog -
I haven't seen this quilt in real life but I don't think this photo does it justice. It was pictures of the individual blocks like these below that really caught my attention.
I'm sure you can see why I was inspired!
I never would have dreamed of having the opportunity to take a class with the famous Brenda. Thanks to Linda the 'one day' Dear Jane quilt will now be happening :)
Finishing this secret sewing block was a great opportunity to practise sewing with Liberty fabrics. They are truly something else! Beautiful to needle turn and they don't fray so you can afford to have a small seam allowance to turn under. I was glad that I already use fine no. 11 straw needles and fine Superior thread.
Do you have an exciting sewing experience to look forward to?
