All I have to say this week is:- The weather is awful, wet, soggy, grey, miserable and depressing.

This weeks quilt idea:- Bring into focus  This quilt again uses Art Gallery Fabrics from the Pure Elements range and two studio designer ranges Poetica and Floressence.

Bring into focus

This quilt measures approximately 65.5″ by 82.5″

The quilt is made from two blocks a variation on each other.
