zigzags on, originally uploaded by Piece Play.

I am lagging so far behind the group schedule but love making this quilt. With each border there are endless possibilities for playing around with colour and pattern, and in the  process of making these decisions I’m becoming a bit less timid and self-conscious about choosing the ‘wrong’ option.

Do have a look at Effie’s beautiful child size quilt here. It is one of my favourite quilts and features pieces of beautiful vintage fabric with a ‘Red Riding Hood’ motif. The wolf illustrations on the fabric are magnificent in it. In one of the blocks Effie has changed the image with applique so that all of the blocks would be different-it’s impossible to spot that a Red Riding Hood and some flowers have been appliqued over a wolf!
