BQS 3 – A Start

You might remember that I entered the Brit Quilt Swap Round 3. Very early on I started stalking my partner but there wasn’t much to find out. I checked out the flickr page to see what quilts she liked and got quite confused as I felt she didn’t have a specific style that she preferred. So I went back to the email with her preferences and her mosaic. My partner’s style is quite different from mine but that’s part of the fun when you enter a swap.

This is what I have come up with so far:

Autumnal colours and nature are two of the things my partner likes so I’ve decided to make a road that disappears into the distance and a tree. The tree will be raw edge appliqué, something I haven’t got much experience with. This whole little quilt, which should finish at 18″ square, has been so much fun to plan and I’m really enjoying the fact that I’ve come out of my comfort zone and tried something new.

Mailing window opens in nine days so I better get a move on.
