colour weaving

Its been way too long since I have done any quilting so today was the day and I cherished every moment of it!
Q:What do you get when you cross this blue fabric


With this green fabric?


Answer: An eye-popping colourful quilt!


I have had a book called "simply stunning woven quilts" by Anna Faustino for a while and just havent been inspired enough to get started....until today. I am so pleased with the results and its was just soo much fun to do. Now the question is....where do I go from here? Do I add some applique or just leave the colours to speak for themselves? Hmm need to think about that. I would love to hear your ideas.
On another note...last week I met up with a lovely quilter, Ada from Canada who got in contact with me via my blog. Her daughter lives here in Singapore and they were coming to visit so she asked if we could meet. We had a lovely morning sharing stories and photos of quilts. Thanks Ada for a lovely morning. You can check out her blog at www.thelight-heartedquilter.blogspot.com. Quilters are such lovely people no matter where they are from!

I just found your blog through a recommendation from Karen Griska on her Selvage Quilts blog -- this first quilt is STUNNING! I'm looking forward to wandering through your posts.

Thanks Biddy, I loved your quilts especially the ones with the coffee cups and the chickens.
Happy Quilting!
