white block #1

I've always wanted to make a white patchwork quilt with little bit of colour but didn't know where to start so this idea went back to the sketch book.After a year and lots of doodles,scrambled ideas,sketches I came to a conclusion that if I don't start it now then I'll never do it. I've decided to use white fabric scraps from my dresses..so I guess this will be a sort of memory quilt.

Here is the first block...
                    


top half of the block-crocheted circle with some french knots,kantha stitches and pleats,fly stitches..
                   

bottom half of the block-pin tuck,piping,bullion loops, needle lace, a shisha mirror, blanket stitches,sheaf stitches,ribbed wheel,cross stitches,herringbone with running stitches over a seam...
                 

close-ups
                



Happy stitching!
Anita

This will be a fascinating quilt to look at, remember the dresses and where you wore them, and with whom...

This will be a lovely memory quilt. It's both feminine and a record of stitches learned.
Very delicate. Love it!

Very nice. This reminds me the cloths I have kept to make quilt. As you said, if I don't' start now I will not be able to do it ever. Thanks
