I decided I would make my own version of her Toran quilt -
I was keen for a pink and red combination and did my best not to use green and blue fabric ... because I am always drawn to those colours so always use them.
All of the fabrics came off the shelf including the linen-ish 'solid'. If I did this one again, I would cut my strips fatter because I often ended up with a skinny strip right at the bottom when I trimmed the blocks back to 8.5",
I also felt like hand quilting. I am trying to use bigger stitches and to get them even. I think I will stitch in between these lines with some pink perle thread. And I 've seen a Jen Kingwell video online where she demonstrates hand quilting little x stitches, so I might add some of those too.
I like this little quilt lots.
In the April hols, I went to Singapore, primarily for the World Education Leadership Summit, but managed some holidaying before and after the conference. I hadn't been to Singapore before. It was an interesting place to visit. I particularly enjoyed the smaller communities outside of Orchard Road. I loved the side-of-the-road sewing service. There were Juki machines everywhere in Little India.
