Ambleside Block of the month course update.

This course started in February at Tudor Rose Patchwork and I can’t believe that we are already half way through the blocks.

The pictures in the gallery below, show how beautiful the quits are going to look just from these first two blocks. There is such a variety of colour schemes, from cool and monochromatic, dramatic accents to fun primary brights. Each quilt will have a distinct personality and I can’t wait to see them finished.

There will be sashing and cornerstones between the blocks allowing each one to shine in its own right.

Ambleside Quilt 2020
Ambleside Quilt 2021

Each year I work a quilt alongside the group. I used a beautiful collection of fabric designed by Lynnette Anderson for the 2020 quilt. For 2021 the fabrics were from the Rainbow colours and Brighton collections by Stoffabrics. This year I am using Big Sky by Annie Brady for Moda, and Bumbleberries from Lewis & Irene. I haven’t decided which thread to quilt it and have three very similar ones to choose from. Two Superior Thread King Tut collection and one from the Masterpiece collection. I will have to do some auditioning and sampling soon as I can’t put off the quilting for ever. It is a nice dilemma to have though.

Happy Quilting
