Dusk Round the Year
I had this horrible nightmare last night, where I had given the wrong fabric requirements for the “Round the Year” Block of the Month I am hosting! In the morning, I checked, but all seems to be okay, except the requirement for 36″ background fabric which I increased to 3.5 metres from the more conservative 3.25 metres.
I also saw a request on my blog for a downloadable file for the fabric requirement, which I think is a great idea. As there are at least two `official’ colourways, to avoid confusion, I am calling the blue- orange -yellow version “Dusk Round the Year” !
I am so fascinated by the wonderful colours that the setting sun paints across the skies – the brilliant oranges, golds and yellows – colours that can be rarely matched on canvas. Some may claim that sunrises are equally beautiful, but being a late riser I am rarely up in time to appreciate those. My quilt is, I hope, going to be evocative of languid monsoon evenings – grey clouds looming while the blues, more brilliant than ever after the rains, struggle to make their presence felt before the indigo darkness prevails!
I do so ramble on, don’t I? So without much further ado, here is the Fabric Requirement -Round the Year – Dusk !
You will need Adobe Reader (available free online) on your laptop to be able to view this file.
For those of you planning to make the `Rainbow’ version of the quilt, I hope to be able to post the requirements by tomorrow.
