So, as I predicted, I came into the studio this morning and immediately saw what was wrong with my Blighty quilt (it’s supposed to be called ‘a green and pleasant land’ but appears to have renamed itself)

A few (much happier) hours later the quilt now looks like this:



There is still a long way to go.

But the quilt pinned on my design wall is just starting to look like the quilt in my head.

Better. Much better.
