1797 Revisited

And I have a finished flimsy!


In November 2018 I joined a facebook EPP group that were using this quilt


from the V&A as inspiration.


I have used hand dyed fabrics many of which are recycled clothing and enjoyed every minute!


Now Iam wondering if it needs a border!

WOW! It is wonderful! Congratulations! The colors are so lovely. Excellent work, Lin. How big is it? Sorry I can't help you with the borders as I have no idea. ;^)

Congratulations. That is do beautiful, and such a lot of work. Your colour choices are lovely. No rush to decide about borders. Sit back and enjoy it for a few days.

Hurrah! Well done; quite an achievement, considering that you hand dyed the fabrics as well.
Border - are you going to back it, or stitch it to a background fabric? You might find that the hexie points might start curling up if you don't do anything.

What a lovely quilt and extra special since you dyed the fabrics. They have such pretty variations in the colors. Whether you border or not it will be pretty. Although I vote a border - because it will give the eye a place to land and then come back to see the colors in the hexies again. I think a plain color border about twice the width of the hexie and then a border of a print with several of the quilts colors, (if that is possible to find).

Hello Lin,

Absolutely beautiful, you must be pleased as punch. Please tell me what you used to dye the fabrics. Love the idea of using pre-loved fabric, we all need to do more of that. So inspirational. Thank you.
Bev.

Those colours are lovely and it would be fun dyeing them yourself... enjoying the results. I can feel your enthusiasm.
All good wishes, Sue xx
