{week 48} patchwork quilt

I had a sudden thought in bed last night – is it actually week 47? Have I deceived everyone? I resisted the urge to check there and then – iPhone use at 2am is not conducive to a good night’s sleep. But it’s okay, last week was definitely 47 so this is 48. And I only have 4 weeks to go. Wow.

Anyway, as I teased yesterday, this week’s craft is patchwork quilting. I can’t show a photo of the finished quilt as it’s a secret. But I made a cushion too with the left over fabric and batting.

The fabric is from the Central Park range by Moda. And the cotton wadding is Quilters Dream. I really love the fabric so I think I might get some more – a pack of fat quarters just doesn’t go far when you’re making a quilt. I’m also thinking a quilt made with the Cut Out and Keep collection by Heather Moore would also be gorgeous:

There is too much amazing fabric in the world and not enough storage in my craft room. Sigh. Do you have a favourite fabric range or designer at the moment that you’d stock up on if space (and money) was no object? And have you made a quilt? I’d love to see your photos.
