Brit Quilt Swap. In fact I am a Swap Mama!
We are a small group of UK based quilters swapping doll-size quilts. There are about 40 of us in this first round (I am sure there will be future rounds and more swappers next time!). So far I have been amazed by the standard of work and the amount of talent in our little group - Go Brit Quilters!!
I have decided to make this scrappy, mini kaleidoscope quilt. I was really inspired by this beautiful quilt by Clothwork. I love all the hidden circles you can see. Somehow, I haven't been able to get as many circles to 'pop out' of my quilt top. I'm not sure whether that's because it's smaller or just that I didn't pick fabric with quite the right tones. It is a lovely pattern though, so I may experiment on a bigger quilt in the future.
I think it is a bit busy for a border so I might just bind it. Any ideas for borders/binding?
Also, my partner likes buttons, what do you think of adding some little buttons to the block intersections? It would certainly help hide my imperfect piecing! But is it busy enough already?
Why not head over to the Brit Quilt Swap group on Flickr and take a look at our collective creative output?!
