Looking through Claire's copy something must have been fermenting in my mind because when I got home on Saturday I started looking for my camera fabric.
|Fabric from Fluffy Sheep Quilting, Etsy, Celtic Fusion Fabrics and Fat Quartershop (Snapshots bundle by Riley Blake)|
I don't quite have enough fabric in this bundle to make a whole brick quilt out of cameras so if you guys have any links or come across any camera fabric please send a link my way! I need about 6 more FQ's to make the pattern size in the magazine.
So instead of chopping up camera fabric I decided to audition solids for my attempt at Sashiko stitching. I thought solids in between the oriental 4 patches would be a good way to use up the leftovers from my Japanese Applique quilt.
I originally thought Kona Ash would work but its not quite right. Red is a bit too much this time around so I've gone with white, yellow and 2 blues and I hope to add in orange and red Sashiko stitching in these spaces along with some blues and whites in the darker colours. We'll see how that goes!
As this is a bit small (blocks are 8.5") I think I might border it with a dark navy. I haven't forgotten Wilbur either so will be plugging away quilting him this week too!
