I have become a firm follower of the Material Obsession style, and couldn't wait for the issue of their new book. Why they changed the original title from 'Making Quilts - the Promise of Joy' I have no idea, but luckily, the inside of the book seems to be the same!
The book is, for me, much like a Kaffe Fassett quilt book - a source of inspiration and eye candy rather than a pattern book. Both Kaffe and Kathy are masters of bright colours and unusual combinations which look effortless, but I have found (to my cost and dismay) are far from that.
I really wanted to have a go at these spirals. (I'm fascinated by circles at the moment.) I've hand pieced it, and I'm sure it will look fine once I've ironed it. It WILL!
And here is the next one beginning.
And here is the reason that I'm hand piecing and can't iron my blocks - we're on holiday in Penzance for the week. Here is DH at Land's End. Can you see America in the distance? It's the next land mass, so should be out there somewhere!
