I have used a lovely soft cotton as a base, to be honest this did start as a cushion cover, but having cut such a large piece for the base, it may be turning into a quilt... maybe add a couple of pieced borders... who knows!

Work is busier than ever, which is great for the shop, not so good when I'm wanting to start a new project! Finally a day off to myself - sunshine beaming through the window, John Grisham's The Racketeer on iTunes, and a new block completed. I have seriously fallen in love with the Swoon Block, inspired Beth de Maille's Pinterest board I thought I would try one for my quilted pictures.
I've also been looking forward to using Denyse Schmidt's new Shelburne Falls fabrics, (available at Doughtysonline) I think the small prints lend themselves well to such an intricate block.
