You know the proverbs about idle hands and all that... As I got a spare week this month, I decided to start a new project - a patchwork quilt and matching curtains for my youngest daughter. As it's lilac time of the year, then it will be "Lilac" quilt.
My fav pattern for a fast quilt is the pinwheel. It's fast, easy and looks well.
I do recycle. By principle. Especially with projects like this, it is silly to start with shopping right away - the whole idea pf a patchwork is recycling.
So I picked up several quite horrible cotton sateen leftovers, played with colours and I think I find quite bearable combination.
The next thing is - the scheme. How many of each kind of blocks I need for this project.
So far so good.
Then I needed the base material. For the quilt and for the curtains. And the trouble started. Went to the shop. The choice? Right colour? Only light cotton available. Right material - sateen - completely wrong, heavy colours.
Nobody is perfect! I'm not nobody, you know :D
