August inspiration of the month

Hello everybody. We are resuming our popular ‘Inspiration of the month’ feature after a short break and have some wonderful quilts coming up over the forthcoming months.

Our August’ quilt is one of feedsacks, stars, a love arrow, a lot of purple and oakshotts all combined together expertly by Sarah from nohatsinthehouse. 

Sarah calls this quilt “the radiant one“.

Its a wonderfully pieced quilt that has scattered stars seemingly randomly placed with a clever arrow in the middle that almost gives the impression to give the stars their “flying” direction, North-East folks, head North-East!

The background fabric is a mixture of feedssck and Oakshotts in subtle off- white colours that I so love. Sarah cut these in 2 1/2 inch strips and pieced it all together on the diagonal which can’t have been easy.

The fabulous arrows in the middle is a paper pieced arrow that she offers as a free pattern on Craftsy.

The quilt isn’t actually finished and Sarah has only just decided on hand quiliting this beauty. Follow her on her blog and see how this already stunning quilt gets its finishing touches over the next months.
