Q&A with Majo

Shari Aman asked:
I love this! I wish there was a pattern to download!
Majo answered:
You don't really need a pattern. The centre of the quilt is made up of squares ... I used 3" squares so the quilt worked out to be the size I wanted. The centre uses the colourwash technique so it is then a matter of choosing the colour of the heart and then a variety of fabrics from (in my quilt) white (the background); fabrics with some background and purple through to all purple. I used flowers because of the title of my quilt and I had many of the fabrics in my stash just waiting to be used.
