a quilt

Sorry ive been very absent from this space.
Life is insanely busy at the moment.
Among lots of things ive been working on the finding, designing and making of this queen sized quilt
over the last few weeks, for a market customer.

About half of its fabrics are from my stash,

then I purchased some rich velvets and vintage brocades hoping to find a balance of textures
 and give it an oriental feeling overall. 

 I did sneak a bit of linen from Amitie and a retro floral,

a bit of a 'tree' toile,

plus its very wonky and handmade. But by the end I was still in love with it which to me is a good sign.

I love it! It also has a rich, wintry feel to it.
