Reviving a quilt pattern - Roman Perdu
This quilt pattern appeared in Popular Patchwork magazine about ten years ago. It is still one of my favourite quilts, made from ultra cosy brushed cottons recycled from sample books, with other fabrics I bought at a charity fundraiser from one of the Gresford Craft Group gang. Should I republish the pattern?
I remember it took a bit of working out, as the sashing made calculating the setting triangles a bit tricker than usual. The quilting design was a bit of a mash up between sashiko and traditional quilting patterns and was 'marked' with masking tape as nothing would show up as a marker on those busy busy plaids.
