Purple Coneflowers: work in progress
Laura Wasilowski's work at college. I bought a quilt kit from Laura and Frieda Anderson's stall at the Festival of quilts last year so decided it was time to make it up to show my students. Here it is in progress.
As you can see in the photo I've fused the picture in place and I'm part way through stippling the background. The hand dyed fabrics in the kit are beautiful - especially the border fabric which graduates from green through to orange and fushia pink. I'm using a gorgeous King Tut variegated cotton for the stippling and it sews like a dream!
I'm trying to do a little quilting each evening after work so hopefully it will be finished by the weekend. Visit Frieda's website for more of her lovely designs!
