After last night's place mat debacle I decided to start on something else. I have really incredible fabrics to work with; bamboo, corduroy, linen, hemp, cotton. The texture of this quilt will be amazing.The show piece is definitely this hand printed hemp. Can you see the bird's nests? Explains why the backing fabric is robin's egg blue. Mary Ann got it in Australia, so you bet I'll be babying this one!I've cut all my pieces for the lap quilt and am trying to decide on a lay-out. These photos were all taken at various stage of sunrise, so excuse the crazy exposure, please.
