Black and Gold

I belong to an internet forum of longarm quilters. We were set a challenge several months ago to make a quilt using only two colours. This is my quilt. I made the challenge into a personal multi challenge, to use my least favourite colour, to piece y seams, to use a different binding technique ( I have taken the binding off and put piped binding on since this photo was taken) although I had plenty of notice I was busy during the summer and left myself only a week to complete it before the deadline. The pattern is called Carpenters Wheel and I found a quilt along on this web site.

I quite fancy making another with big oriental prints. Tomorrow is a get together of the longarm quilters group and I shall be leaving it to be displayed at a quilt show in Somerset next month with other quilts from the same challenge.

Till next time, Liz
