So I've just realised that I haven't mentioned one of my most important craft items.... I call it my 30th anniversary celebration quilt. I made it the year I turned 30 (not that long ago), and I wanted to include photos of my loved ones on it.
Because the photos I had were all different colours etc, I made them into sepia so that they would blend nicely with the rest of the colours. I also had to make sure they looked clear enough in sepia.
I created the design myself, through looking at quilting books and magazines. I originally figured that I wanted to make squares with different designs. Then I decided that I wanted to set them out in rings (which is when I came up with the corner square design.
I had lots of scraps of fabric, some of it I loved, others just seemed to look ok, so I just went with it. I didn't go out and buy a heap of fabric that all went perfectly together.
