Ribbon Box Quilt

This is a quilt that I've just finished for a customer. I love the striking simplicity of the pattern. I asked on Instagram what the name of the fabric is and was told it is Grey Abbey by Elizabeth Olwen for Cloud9 fabrics. And the pattern appears on the Cloud9 website too for free. I was interested in the fabric as there were some nice motifs that could be modified to make a quilting pattern. I am going on a course in July to learn how to use Art & stitch so I need to go with some inspiration so I don't sit there like a lemon.

Here's the lovely fresh backing fabric. It has a sprig like print which inspired me to use the vine b2b by Anne Bright.

You can see it better here.
