Darelle's Dryslwyn Dreams
Darelle Castelow sent me a photo of her version of Dryslwyn Dreams, which was my version of a quilt that used to be in Jen Jones's collection. Re the fabrics, she says -
I've done this much and have next colours sorted. I got into a threesome red cream red pink. Have to be more accurate... but I don't guarantee to get it finished for a while.
I used fabrics from a Richmond Red layer cake, Nancy Gere 1875 JR, Jane Austen, Dutch Heritage, Victoria Park, 1840 Birds & Basics, New England Museum and others with no selvedge/name. The filler is Pearl Essence. Hmmm might call it Dryslwyn Essence...
It is looking beautiful in this warmer colour scheme, which reminds me a bit of the reds and browns I used for Cinnabar and Nutmeg. Always a winning combination for antique inspired quilts. I hope I get to see a photo of it finished - I can wait! Thanks very much for the photo of work so far.
