Last year I made a quilt called "Sugar Pie". It uses a sweet, updated version of an old block called 'Ladies' Fancy'.
I had a lovely time colouring in the wedges. Well, actually, going through my stash finding fabric that was fun and charming. When I came across the background fabric I almost swooned. It was just sooo perfect. I bought everything left on the bolt and used it all up.
Not a great photo, I'm sorry. The quilt was hand quilted using mainly Perle 12, which is finer than Perle 8. For a better idea you could always purchase the magazine it is printed in. Australian Quilters Companion "Old Quilts Made New" has just hit the newstands.
Back soon, promise.
