60's Scrapbag
Every time I release a new fabric range I also design a few quilts using the new fabric. This is the first time I get to actually play with my new fabric designs and it is always heaps of fun.The first quilt I made using 60's Scrapbag is called the Peace Quilt. I wanted to design a quilt that used the iconic peace symbol that was very popular during the 1960's.Then I decided to sash the quilt using all the fabrics so the quilt had a flower power feel.It was heaps of fun matching up the fabrics!   I love the way the quilt turned out and I think the simple quilting made the Peace signs really shine!   The finished size of the Peace Quilt is153cms 153cms (60'' x 60'') In my next quilt I decided to use some of the fabulous new Basics Range produced by Ella Blue.These fabrics work perfectly with 60's Scrapbag!     I used a double pinwheel block which gives the quilt so much movement. I also enjoyed pairing up the fabrics! I quilted the quilt myself using my walking foot. I just did straight lines either side of the seams.   The finished quilt size for Spin Cycle is 183cms x 226cms (72'' x 89'')   Wholesale patterns orders from Creative Abundance. For retail pattern purchases, please contact your local patchwork shop.
