I am in awe of anyone who does quilting and patchwork. It is still a mystery to me, even though I have a mother who does so much of it. I guess by the time she got really into it I had moved away from home and was never sitting under the sewing table trying to press her machine pedal in order to ‘help’ her marvellous creations along. I have not previously considered venturing into quilting myself, until this year. The reason for this is each quilt takes a great deal of forward thinking and planning and lots of work, which indeed any sewing project does, but for some reason I am daunted by the prospect of starting such big projects up. My sewing skills are not quite at the standard of quilts yet. I guess I also feel the urge to start quilting because of the ‘puzzle patchwork’ I have been doing for my bags. I need some books and some inspiration. Here are some beautiful pieces that caught my eye on Folksy this week – thank you to the artisans for allowing me to share their beautiful work.
