Patchwork quilt, inspired by V&A Quilt exhibition 2010

Recently, I went to the Selvedge talk on Patchwork quilts at the Phoenix cinema.  The curator from the V&A, was there to talk about a major new exhibition which will feature British quilts from the 1700 to now.  The exhibition opened on 20th March, I hope to visit over the Easter break.  After the talk, I was inspired to make a quilt of my own and decided to launch a project in the school where I work.  At school all the children will be invited to decorate a square for a school quilt or possibly if we have too many, a class blanket for the book corner. 

For my own quilt I have decided to use an eclectic  range of fabric.  I have been drawn to a simple stylised flower pattern which you can see on some of the squares.  I also want the quilt or possibly throw to be in a colour pattern of grey, fuchsia, cream, turquoise and yellow.
