Glitter quilt

I made a bit of progress on my Glitter quilt in April.  This is a Jen Kingwell pattern, available in her book "Quilt Lovely" or as a leaflet from Amitie Textiles.


I'm using the acrylic templates made by Amitie, and hand piecing each block.  I draw pencil stitching lines on the back of each block by connecting the dots with a ruler, and then join the pieces with a running stitch.


It's a slow process, but I enjoy cutting the blocks during the day, and stitching a block each night.




I've currently got 55 blocks finished and I need 152.  That's not bad - I've made a third of the blocks.




I still have many more fabric combinations waiting to be used.  This quilt is for our bed. I chose to restrict the colour palette to green and grey because it will complement the gorgeous wallpaper we hung last year.
