I have long admired the uniquely Australian designs of Ink & Spindle, Maze and Vale and Umbrella Prints. Over time a small sampling from each has been purchased and carefully stored. It's wonderful to see and touch the various organic fabrics and experience the wonderful colours of the base cloth and water based textile inks. With pleasure I'm beginning to cut, arrange and sew these, along with several solids and a couple of Ink & Spindle's new quilting cottons by Cloud 9 Fabrics. Ideas are gradually taking shape for a new Australian inspired quilt.
Gentle hand quilting is continuing on my Set Free quilt. All the vertical lines are complete and the horizontal lines will provide the perfect slow sewing option over the next week or so. I really enjoy having some machine sewing as well as some hand work (and a little EPP) in progress, a creative project for every opportunity!
