Big Bang Theory


I finished this quilt recently. I named it ‘Big Bang’  as it reminded me of cosmic explosions and intergalactic phenomena and for a more prosaic reason in that I had just watched the entire boxed set of Big Bang Theory in the space of around 4 weeks. As quilty people probably know, the pattern is actually New York Beauty. I used fabric foundations for the blocks and embellished it with beading as I had been recently inspired by a mini workshop at the Creative stitches show. I love the idea and practice of beading but am not really a jewellery sort of person so needed to find a way to use the lovely colours and textures of the beads in my work. I need to become a better photographer!

Here is a shot showing some of the beading detail.

I love this quilt pattern and have many more ideas for it when I have the time. I am gradually going to show my other finished quilts and their stories.


About plymouthmaid

Oooh how to decide what are the most important things to say about me? That is hard. Is it what I do for a living? (Teacher of Maths, English and ICT). Is is my age? (nearly 50 boo hoo). Is it my family? (2 grown up lovely girls, an other half, Marley the daft spaniel and the rest of the family to numerous to mention). Is it my many hobbies? (patchwork and quilting, crochet, beading, gardening, cooking, poker, walking, digital scrapbooking, computer forums). You can be the judge as I don't know where this blog will lead as I am totally new to the blogging world but wanted somewhere to post some recipes I am developing..
