    Arabian Nights - a Work in Progress

    Hi all.

    Today, instead of finishing any of my other projects, I well and truly crossed over into the 'Dark Side' and admitted that there is a strong probability of terming myself as a 'quilter'.
    I've been avoiding that term, as I need to focus on another craft like another hole in the head - but this project has been swimming around in my head for the past 3-4 years and finally splashed to the surface this morning.

    There is NO pattern. I have images taken from a child's story book from the late 50's to early 60's to draw from. I first thumbed through this book some 4 years ago, and realised that the images would translate so nicely to stitchery and therefore a quilt. I bought the main fabric some time ago - it reminds me of sand swirling.
    This is the first square stitched. This will be a colourful quilt - think of velvets and satins, jewel colours; aquamarine, golds, purples - I also plan plenty of sequins and beading.
    Please join me on this journey. I'm sure to learn a lot of things along the way.

    hey no fair! This is like reading a book in installments
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.
