Loose Threads: Rotherfield Greys Center

Rotherfield Greys Center

I have been working on the center of the Rotherfield Greys quilt from Di Ford's book, Primarily Quilts.  I love all of the quilts from her book, but this quilt has everything:  English paper piecing, applique',  traditional piecing and lots of different fabrics.



I've been making 1/2" hexagons for this quilt and another project for awhile.  I talked about them in this post.



Here are a couple of photos of the quilt from Di's book.







I hope you are finding some time to stitch today!  

Thanks for stopping by for a visit!

Your block is awesome dear friend, also having fun traveling on the journey with you, we have quite a few hexagons to make yet and a ways to go until we finish. Looking forward to the next border.

That is my favorite quilt in her book. I hope to make it someday, too. Thanks for the inspiration!!

Luann, thanks so much for the suggestion of where to buy the book. I got it!! and it came fast. Like you, I like all the quilts in the book. I've decided, when I get some things done, that the first one I make is Oh, Dear, Mrs. Tompkins. Thanks for linking to Applique Tuesday.

What.a fabulous quilt and now I want the book. Going to have to look for it on amazon. I have made some of those small hexie flowers too,,,plan on using them on a border. They are fun to make, but a tad tedious! Yours look great!
