Too much time is spent on Instragram, moments snatched here and there. Enabling me to dream of much inspiration, aspiration --but in reality not enough time or expertise!
However I instantly was taken by the quilt below.

@cathmosely on Instagram made a gorgeous, vivid and bright rainbow baby heart quilt with a Kona Solids Roll Up / Jelly Roll.
I scoured the net to find such a vivid Jelly Roll, only to be put off by the brutal shipping / postage charges from overseas.
A light bulb moment ensured I raided the stash. I had a half jelly roll of Vintage Modern left from a previous project. I auditioned the fabrics several times, enlisting the help of family and friends to ensure the colours ranged from darkest to the lightest. Using a black and white filter on the camera also helped with colour placement / colour values.

Enlisting the assistance of my SIL the ever so prolific quilter, she had a pattern draughted whilst I was still muddling about at home. My SIL drew up a pattern, raided her stash, and made the quilt below. She is so quick, and so inspiring.
|Masterpiece from the SIL!|
Now for mine to be quilted, bound and gifted.
