Quilting is Fun

This is how far I got in the meantime, more or less; I should be walking all the time, but I just can't resist my craft desire. I found this light turquoise lining fabric, it follows the quilting stitches quite smoothly. Also the false dupioni doesn't look bad, although it really doesn't have the charms of charmeuse, right piece center in blue and green. The center diamond is some of the light blue fabric, covered with rust and gold woven chiffon. Very difficult to quilt!

You're very brave to use that mixture of fabrics...

...they work really well, especially when the stitches unite them...

I get a bit afraid if my cloth gets too busy....so tend to shy away from bold patterns in fabrics.

..maybe it's a leftover from a previous lifetime...

...and maybe it'll work itself out by the next one :-)

It's always great to see how things develop ...
I see that you are stitching your pieces onto a plain red piece of cloth...
I think it's difficult sometimes to choose your backing: especially when you don't know yet how big it will grow!!
