Om Kleurvol te lewe

Here is my quilt "Om kleurvol te lewe" (To live colourful). For me it is important that everyday should be meaningful and that I never wish for the time to past- to live in the moment.

I love circle and square embroidery designs- if you are a long time reader of my blog, you would have notice this. I was just in love with these designs of "Addicted to Stitches" and I bought them from Oregon Patchworks.

This blocks from Janet Sansom went well with the Floral and Lace blocks. Originally I planned to make a type of Trip Around the World quilt. Then I saw a design in the Quilter's Newsletter magazine and I thought I could use a variation of this and incorporate this big blocks.

When I pieced the Star blocks I realized that I have a 10 cm (4 inch) square in the middle. So on this I embroidered a variety of designs, many from Molly Mine designs.

This quilt was completed in April 2011 and entered in the South African National Quilt Festival in July in Stellenbosch. Here is some more of the small blocks.
