Sharne I wish I could say I had dyed the fabric's but , the fabric's are Hoffman's Batiks, I bought it on the last day of a holiday we took in W. Virginia in 2006. We were staying in Charlottesville for a few days and I'd already spent far too much on fabrics on our tour through W Virginia and found Cottonwood , I fell in love with a block of fat quarters and said to Dave 'That would make a lovely quilt for our bed' it took 3 years before I could bring myself to undo the ribbon and take the block of wonderful colours apart. The quilt is for a King size bed and I've got enough fabric over to make a small quilt, I did buy some extra black batik for the boarder. I'm quilting in the ditch of each block, then I'm planning on machine quilting a free machine pattern on the boarder, not sure about that yet!
Thanks Gina, glad you like the colours.
A couple of photos of the hotel and the gardens of the hotel we stayed at in Charlottesville. It was when I was looking at the photo's for yesterdays blog I realised how long I'd been admiring the fabrics, how sad is that 3years!
