Thank you.  :)

I like your big safety pin Sandra.

The safety pin appeared in the background of a fashion photo in a magazine article. Loved it  :loveit:  and HAD to have one. Luckily it said where it was available from in the small print...Rockett st George...although it was a few years ago.

Yellow!  Fab!  Now I'm excited to see how these will develop.  (I'd got bored of blue/grey - on mine, not yours.)

Looking at this, I've realised that I've made mine upside-down - low temperature at the top and high temperature at the bottom.  I'm not going to undo it now!

I've decided on a dark, inky blue for the background...and it really does look very inky  :S  so I've washed it to see if the colour was going to bleed from it.
It washed OK with not too much...actually, hardly any... blue showing in the washing machine water.




My plan is to create a two inch border of this blue, with a little one inch multi-coloured strip of whatever colours I've got left out of my fabrics I'm using...then a surrounding, deeper border of this blue.
I'll have to see how it looks as it's going together.
Plans may change.  :)

Ahhh thats lovely @Sandra  Thank you so much for the pics.

I love dark dark fabrics that arent black .. The Villages border was a really dark green (stonehenge) and I think it just brings out the colour in the whole piece.

Loving that dark blue, is it a batik or ????

Nah its Spraytime right??? Lovely intense colour!

Yes. I know what you mean. I didn't fancy     :\  black  :\

As I've used batiks, I wanted the outer fabric to have the same depth of colour.
The blue is a lovely batik from Doughty's.  I was ever so good  :angel:  and only purchased the one fabric...isn't that good of me?

It's a, 'Sew Simple Batik Basic'...it looks so inky that I expected my hands to be stained blue after handling it, but it's behaved itself and washed really well.

But how MUCH of that did you buy???? Haahahaahaha ...

I wouldnt have bothered washing but thank you for doing the experimentation for me!

I use sew simple from Doughty all the time. I believe the first quilt show I went to (Exeter) I staggered out with metres and metres of the stuff! Hence the batik stash that can be seen from space (according to NASA)

 :) That's better, thank you.
I'm loving these bright splashes of colour.  :) Lets hope we get lots more.

That's the first third of the year done.
