A Cuzco Kind of WiP
I have made progress on my Cuzco Garden Fence quilt! That clearly needs a better name. Any thoughts?
Last you saw it, it looked like this:
Now it looks like this!
Love love love. Of course it still has another two colours to be added to the mix which will give me another two rows for a nice square quilt. I will be adding white sashing between the blocks too to break up all that solidarity. I know, I’m completely using that word in the wrong context (in the words of Princess Bride, “I do not think that word means what you think it means”) but you get what I mean, right?
So details – if you haven’t worked them out yet. Central fabric is a charm pack of Kate Spain’s new line called Cuzco. Seriously, soooo love this one. The solids are Bella Solids that I tried to match. Some are spot on (thanks to the great listing on the United Notions site), some aren’t quite but will do in a pinch. The pattern is Garden Fence by Hyacinth Quilt Designs – freebie and fabulous. Thank you Marieka for inspiring me to try one of my own!
And because I love it and that small photo doesn’t do it justice, here are a couple of my favourite blocks.
Isn’t that peacock sweet? Shame it’s missing its tail! The Bella solid is Azalea. Gorgeous pink.
Loving those flowers. This Bella Solid is Amelia Lavender.Which I luurrvvveee (or love if you don’t speak “ridiculous”).
This solid is Amelia Purple. I think I luurrvvveee it even more than the Lavender. Are you sick of looking at blocks yet? Okay just one more.
One more peacock – this one with its tail! The solid for this one is Turquoise.
So I have 17 squares done, 8 to go!
Oh and one last thing… go cast your eye over the gorgeous quilts up for voting at Ellison Lane’s Summer Sewing Contest. My gorgeous friend Fiona from Finding Fifth made the top 12 with her Fussy Fairytales quilt! So exciting!
Well that WiP is calling my name. Must be time to sew.
