Started all over


I started the comfortquilt for Hiske all over again and it will be a road to ireland quilt.

I love how the fabrics work together. It is a real stashquilt as all the fabrics are from my stash, now only I have to think about the border, but I am sure I will come up with something. I don't have enough of these fabrics to use them also for the borders.

Now I am back downstairs to drink and stitch for awhile and maybe later today some more sewing.

I love the colours you have picked for this quilt. Please keep us posted on your progress. I made a Road to Ireland quilt once but the fabric I chose for the small squares did not have enough contrast and the "road" got lost on the quilt. I see that you have high contrast so your quilt should be stunning!

This is going to be a stunning quilt, Judith. One of the girls in my local quilt group has made two of them and I posted links and pics on my blog if you want to take a look. I know that Norma and Eileen also have one on their blogs as well.

Links to the ones I showed are Here and Here

Those colors are beautiful, and the contrast for the 'road' is very good. Make sure to show us when it is done.

The colours you've chosen look really good together. It'll be great to see the pattern emerge as you set it together. :-)

Good start to what will undoubtedly be a beautiful quilt. Those colors are smashing.

That's beautiful - I don't think I've seen the pattern before . . . or it had a different name, if I did. I love the way it looks so far.

I really like the colors too... forest green is my favorite!

I want to see a picture of Sjors too! I'm a cat person. :)

Nice, I did a small "Road to Ireland" once upon a time ago... But I used a theme print for the border and pulled fabrics for the inside from it...
