The Villa Quilt

My friend Bronwen (who doesn't read my blog) is moving into an old villa on Friday. She loves quilts but doesn't sew, so I decided to make her one as it'll suit the house. On reflection, I probably shouldn't have used the pink rose fabric, but I wanted several small floral prints and I didn't have much in my stash to choose from. The main fabric is one I bought the other day for the double pinwheel quilt, but when I looked at the pattern again, I realised it wouldn't suit so put it aside. It's perfect for this project.

Because it's a simple pattern, I photographed each stage to make it into an online class for beginners. Hopefully I'll get time over the next week to sandwich and quilt it.

Your friend Bronwen will love the quilt you are making for her.

That is a beautiful traditional quilt. What a good idea photographing it each step of the way for an on-line class.
