I'm staying with my sister at the moment on holiday. Wonderful fun, and I can show one of my favourite quilts that I gave to her for her birthday a couple of years ago.

This is based (again) on one of Gwen Marston's quilts in Abstract Quilts in Solid Colours - with blue as the base colour and various pastels attached. I think I have made something inspired by everything in that book! The main part is triangles turning all sorts of ways and I added a liberated piano keys border to make it big enough for a queen bed. Here's one without the flash to show the quilting; basic outline / echo big stitch in embroidery floss.
