The House Finch" I am using the fabrics I mentioned way back in this post, they include linens, liberty prints, french ticking, spots, dots and florals in reds, beige, cream, tan and taupe. My client also asked if I would include some doilies which are family heirloom's in the quilt. They are truly beautiful, some were still pined in their original box.
I thought it was such a lovely idea to use them this way rather then leave them to collect dust in a cupboard. I decided to incorporate them into the block design and cut them to the exact size of the other squares/rectangles in the quilt. Rather then sewing them whole and uncut on top of the patchwork. Hopefully I will avoid the quilt looking hmmm a little to "old fashioned", opting for more of a contemporary french farmhouse appeal.
