Lea’s Floral Fabric Quilt

crafty-calender057This quilt was inspired by a piece of floral fabric given to me by a friend, Lea. I tossed the fabric into the cupboard and it landed next to the matching plain fabrics.

It was made between May and August 1985, with 12 blocks from the book I was using as a teaching aid,  Sampler Quilts by Dianna Leonne.

Machine pieced, hand quilt as you go blocks, and used for quite a few years as a throw in our lounge room. The colours above are pretty true(on my monitor anyway) while the quilt below is pretty true to the way it looked when it left home with Nigel.
