Patchwork Progress

Twilight Pond fabric for quilt backing  Nicky Perryman artist

A bit like Pilgrim’s Progress I think; trudging along carrying a bundle! I’ve been doing a bit more to my quilt and then had to stop realising that I wasn’t sure where these colours would fit in. So I laid the whole thing out and worked out where the large strip I’d done would fit into the rest of the quilt (there is one hexie that needs taking out as it just looks weird) and started sewing it together just to make sure I didn’t lose track of it again. I like the back of the quilt with all the lose bits of patches – it’s quite decorative. I have this gorgeous fabric called “Twilight Pond” which I was going to use as a curtain for the caravan but I think I will use it as the quilt backing instead. I love the colour combination.
