July Quilts :: I’ve been playing with colour this month
“The main thing is to have a go at trying out colours, the wilder the better. None of us designers really know what works until we see it, so sampling becomes wonderfully exciting as you stumble on really unpredictable and interesting colouring.”
Soft, gentle blossoms, simply summer in a quilt.

A pretty blue and orangey quilt with flannelette giraffes and patches.
Such a beautiful combination of reds and aqua shades with bright whites and subtle taupe.
Why Mazurka? Well, one of my favourite composers is Chopin – famous for his traditional Polish mazurkas. The dances tend to have repetition on a traditional theme with rhythmic patterns. Just what I thought of when I created this quilt. Traditional pattern (log cabin), lots of repetition and a stylised pattern. I hope it’s also conveying my favourite modern, crisp quilt style with bold accents of vivid fuschia combined with cool greys. I also happened to listen to one of Chopin’s mazurkas when I was quilting all those straight stylised lines!
Some of the quilts may still be for sale.
