Look what arrived from the US!
I have been waiting for this to arrive from Glorious Color and here it is. 6 yards of Philip Jacobs Picottee Poppy in Ochre. It's destined for the back of my orange brown quilt that has been testing my patience. It's due to test my patience some more as I make the massive sandwich ( 72 inches by 108 inches). But I will not be defeated. I love this pattern, especially the different shades of the outside of the poppies - lovely soft and unexpected pinks and blues.
I really want to do a wide grid machine quilt on this, in line with the blocks. I've bought a lightweight wadding in the hope that I can stuff it through my machine, but I've no idea if this will work. My contingency plan is to hand quilt, but that will take me an age. So fingers crossed - you live and learn!
