Planning ahead. The Four Seasons Spring Swap has commenced and I have been given my partner's details. She doesn't give many clues so I will make it as Springlike as I can. And as it has to be mailed overseas, I am starting early so as not to have that last minute rush to the Post Office.
This is what I would like to do. Folded Fabric Flowers from the book by Rebecca Watt. A lovely book which has been in my possession for some time. I am quite expert in Origami of the Dove, I was shown how to do this when I was 8. But unfortunately that's where my skills stopped. It was quite funny, I spent most of Saturday trying to figure out how to fold. Like I have said before there seems to be a certain hole in my brain. I could get so far and then nothing, I just couldn't fathom out the next step. So trying not to look too meek I asked The Scot. Of course he has to have a fresh piece of fabric, I have to keep very quiet, and he works through it step by step. Oh to have his logical brain. Together with mine I would be brilliant.
Here are three flower blocks I have made. They are getting easier, although I can't see myself making a large quilt out of them. But I think they will be perfect for a Spring WallQuilt.
Now have you any suggestions on the background. I have some pink and pale green ones. Or should I start again and use dyed fabrics for the flowers. Decisions Decisions.
