This quilt is a perfect illustration of combining the different steps in making a quilt! Jo had no idea of what would happen next, but began making twenty pieced blocks with the red prints from her Classics collection.
Then the paisley print of the inner blocks was introduced to bring a touch of elegance and as Christmas was on the horizon, all that was needed was to add the centre appliqué medallion and the borders as a reminder. Jo loves to play in this way, without necessarily having a preconceived idea when she starts a quilt, seeing how it develops as she meets with friends or does research. This is what is so enjoyable about quilting!
