Angella’s Batik Octagon quilt
What attracted you to this particular quilt?
I really liked the warmth in the colours, which isn’t my usual thing as I tend to normally go for cooler colours like blues and greens. But the autumn tones attracted me. Maybe it’s because I made it during autumn.
How long did it take you to complete?
It took me a couple of months. It probably would’ve taken longer, but it was a present for a friend’s 70th birthday, so having that deadline really helped me get my act together.
Have you been quilting for long?
About ten years now, although I still wouldn’t describe myself as being very experienced.
What’s the next project?
An auntie has just had a double mastectomy, so I’m making another version of the same quilt, but this time in softer, more feminine colours.
