You may remember that I had won some beautiful fabric designed by Shannon Brinkley (Dryad) for Paintbrush Studio, Div. of Fabri-Quilt and some thread through the Aurifil blog earlier in the year.
The fabric is absolutely beautiful and the quality is just fantastic. Initially I had thought that I would use this fabric for my Accuquilt Owl shape, not realising that I would get strips, so this was not going to work. What to do? I ended up on Shannon Brinkley's website...she has got some lovely fresh and modern designs on there. I also discovered that she has written a book about her Scrappy Bits Applique technique which looked very interesting (new purchase coming up?)...in the end I decided to do one of her patterns (which is also on the packet of the Snack Pack) "Drifting Leaves". Just love the look of this quilt.
Looks fantastic though, I really like this...so simple but so effective.
The only thing left now is the leaves. For this I ordered some more fabric (Dryad Main Print) from Fort Worth fabric studio to cut out the leaves shapes.
Now we wait...
