The Crafty Ladies & Gents Quilt Update

Here it is! The Crafty Ladies & Gents Quilt! This is a mock up of the patches so far. As you can see I am missing four patches in this image. Two of them I am yet to photograph, I promise I will do that this weekend so you will be able to see them on Monday, and the two others I am waiting to receive. I am so excited that we are almost there! Such beautiful work by many amazing talents all in one quilt!

This isn't the official layout, I just quickly put it together today, but my plan is to do something similar in terms of the colours. I think that creating a slight rainbow effect across the quilt may help to tie all of the patches together nicely. As they are so different, it is a bit of a challenge to make them look unified. I am also planning to put a little linen boarder in between the patches with each sewers name embroyded in gold thread underneith their own masterpiece.

Double click on the image to make it bigger in a new window so you can see a little more of the detail.

I'd love to know your thoughts! Any ideas/inspiration/advice!
Thanks! Lizzy x
