Colourful scrappy cotton reefs, WIP

This is my first attempt at a true colour wash quilt. I planned my colours on EQ5 and then decided upon  the cotton reel block Each block is 6" finished

Using the same fabrics I designed a border to run alongside the colours in the main quilt. The cream is a very fine calico. I am currently quilting the cream and outlining all the reels. as you can see its a work in progress.

Started early 2012
