The Nest

The Nest

My DQS6 for PWMG

As the label says - this one was for Helen, of Patchy Work of Mini Grey (have to find out where that title comes from!) - I felt good about it, only right at the very end - the process was a struggle for me this time round - put a bit of pressure on myself cos Helen is super talented and deserved something of quality and lots of COLOUR!

Got a little hint from a comment by her that she liked the colours - so onwards I went. All of the top fabric is Nest by Tula Pink and I had this design in my head for months and months - I knew how I wanted it to look, but the execution - oh my - I was flying by the seat of my pants! I just sewed and cut and sewed and cut and somehow, It Worked.

I like the back set of fabrics too - it reminds me of William Morris' Strawberry Thief.

Quilted with Perle thread - got to match the greens and the strong pink - and I liked the idea of the echo quilting - I think it gives it movement.

I can imagine the eggs nestled in their nest, swaying in the breeze.

Makes me hungry for some fried eggs on toast LOL!
