Folksy Friday – Quilts and Patchwork

7 Jan

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.  Please click on their hyper-links below each image to see their full shops on Folksy.
