Well, I immediately delved into my favourite Tilda fabric scraps and started to cut out some pieces. I decided not to use the exact pattern from the magazine but to use a more simple nine-patch block as, I am not always very good at sewing small pieces together accurately.
I added a little appliqued heart to the centre, improvised the embroidery and, using the nine-patch block set on point, which appears in another beautiful Mountain Patchwork pattern called 'Garden Gate' and, which is available on the Mountain Patchwork website, made a mini quilt which is now almost ready to be framed.
The simpler nine-patch block allowed me to use slightly larger pieces of fabric for this first project but, now that I have given it a try, I am going to make some more mini quilts using the patterns in the magazine too.
The look of the quilt is quite different from the Mountain Patchwork style because of the different fabrics I have used but I am really pleased with how it is looking.
I still have a few more stitches to finish off and then I will find a frame for it. Incidentally, Mountain Patchwork carry the perfect style of frame to use with this type of project in their online shop, so I will probably be ordering one (or three) from there!
