Making the Camelot quilt has been interesting. I know this sounds silly but I really took no notice of the name, it was just a label. I was surprised when I looked at my blocks and they seemed very heraldic. They reminded me of knights at a jousting tournament. It was only when I articulated this that I realised that was very fitting for a quilt called Camelot!
I have seen many others of this quilt and all are gorgeous but none reminded me of medieval times. That’s why I was surprised when mine did, especially as I have used modern fabrics.
Here’s a photo of the nine completed blocks on what may become the background. I’m actually not sure I like them together. Anyway I’ll wait until I have the other colourways completed.
I’ve finished the first four Camelot Blocks and I thought you might like to see them together. Thank you for all your comments and suggestions I really appreciate them.
I had a minor diasater at one stage when I thought I had finished Block 4 only to take a photo and realise I had one of the sections upside down! I wondered why it didn’t fit well. Oh well the lesson there is don’t work on something when you’re really tired. 🙂
I hope 2013 is a wonderful year for you all and your families.
I’ve sorted out a huge pile of fabrics and made a start on the Camelot quilt I blogged about a while ago here. If you scroll down you can see a picture of the quilt. I’m not sure that I’ll use those fabrics in that blog post for the background. I’m going to make all the circles first then decide.
