Quilt Big Book Tour

Quilt Big Book Tour

Maximum Impact, Minimal Time

Jemima had a super busy year last year and part of it was spent working on her second book.
In this book Jemima explores 'Bigger blocks for faster finishes', a concept I can totally get behind and today I get to share with you my make from her new book as part of the book tour. 

I decided to go with the ...

Lozenge Quilt

I would not normally sew with purple or yellow but I did and I LOVE it!

This combination of purples, yellows/mustards, pinks and blacks with the scrappy low volume background has set my heart aflutter.

The original quilt finishes at 72.5" x 84.5" My quilt finishes at 72.5" square and I quilted it with a serpentine stitch on my domestic machine. The quilting was also done in a purple Aurifil thread.



Everyone taking part in the Book Tour is listed below.
