Yesterday I designed this quilt. Yesterday was my niece Imogen’s birthday. Not hard to figure out where I got my inspiration for the name is it?

When we were at Mittagong on the week-end visiting relatives and I took pictures of this tiled border on the front verandah of their house. Scrappy border anybody? Interesting and I don’t think I have ever seen this type of border on a quilt.
I like the secondary pattern in this design.
I’ve also decided I would like to participate in Bonnie Hunter’s annual mystery quilt along, this year entitled Roll, Roll Cotton Boll. The first clue is up. Her quilts are usually rather large and do take some sewing but they are always fabulous. Of course it’s another way of disposing of some uglies while creating something beautiful. I need another project like I need another kilo around my middle but patchwork and quilting are what I like to do.
I have to go back to my local patchwork shop to pick up some fabric for a quilt border I’m working on. You know the ‘quilt in a day’ idea I’m working on. I don’t know why they call them that because there’s no way you can get a complete top assembled in just one day even without the border. You can certainly learn a new technique or two and get a few blocks assembled and your layout sorted but there’s always work to do at home isn’t there?
Or Chasing Stars if you like. I like this one quite a lot. Warning foundation piecing required here!
Really you could say this is a traditional barn raising layout.
Are you the type of patchworker who gets inspired by the images you see around you? Some of us are. Sometimes you see something and wish you had your camera with you. Well I did and these are the results. Can you see a quilt somewhere?
Another change in a previous quilt series. Probably too much applique for most people.
