2nd on today's agenda…. The Midwinter Reds ikats FLEW out of our ETSY store this weekend. We'll keep you posted if and when we can get our hands on some more bolts of the stuff.
Last, but not least…. the latest update on my Mrs. Billings Coverlet. As you know, all of you who follow this blog, the Mrs. Billings Coverlet is a reproduction of an antique quilt from the United Kingdom. Karen Styles of Somerset Patchwork in Australia developed the modern pattern and made it available to all of us obsessive compulsive patch workers. I visited with Karen and Paul at Quilt Market in Houston and restocked our supply of Mrs. Billings patterns in our Etsy Store.
Here is a photo of my quilt in progress. I taped down the edges for the photograph because since it isn't pressed yet - the edges curl up a bit.
Eleven borders finished and four more to go!
My friend Glenn Dragone got bit by the Mrs. Billings bug too. Glenn took his version in a whole other direction. First he started with every bit of colorful scrap he could find…..
Then he added a chocolate brown background. He starting adding his borders and it takes on a different look at every stage.
When I look at his quilt I think of the song Bohemian Rhapsody. I can't wait to see what the next border looks like. Thanks Glenn, for letting us show your quilt.
