Sidmouth Part 2

There are now four borders around the Sidmouth panel. Two frames of hourglass blocks and two narrow frames of the same fabric.
The hourglass blocks came together quickly once I choose the fabric combinations. Sometimes I find this the hardest part to many colour and print choices to many decisions to be made. JUST CUT AND SEW SUSAN !!!

Ok I will, I am really quite happy with them. Now to choose some more ?   Sue

Sidmouth panel

Back in June this colourful group of fabrics was put together to go with this amazing panel.  The panel comes from the York Quilt Museum. I found it on their online shop..
The panel has come from a quilt in the museums collection called The Sidmouth Quilt.  With the first border on, what happens now? Lots of trial and error and fun, choosing shapes and colours.

The next couple of borders should be on soon. Will keep you posted.  Sue

Back from the Quilters

I am so pleased with the quilting. Once again a great job by Karen and Paul.
This border fabric works so well. 

These last two photos make the quilt look very washed out. The colours are much stronger brown, pink, red and gold the colour combination I seem to use often. With Janine's much appreciated help the binding is sewn on so officially finished.

Happy sewing
