I still owe you pictures of the other packages which arrived on Tuesday. The first was the one I was super excited about: The table runner kit.
I won this table runner kit from Hyggeligt Fabrics on Lynne’s blog Lily’s Quilts. The Oakshott Rubies are incredibly beautiful. The colours are luminous and rich and change according to the light. Absolutely stunning. You really have to see them for real to properly appreciate their beauty. Because they are so wonderful I have decided not to make a table runner but a wall hanging. I couldn’t bear seeing these fabrics all sticky and soaked in juice or milk something which most definitely will happen with a four year old in the house. I won’t be able to start on it till next week but that’s alright. It just means that I can fondle the fabrics a little bit longer.
The second package was from Eclectic Maker and contained some fusible fleece, a fat quarter bundle of Parson Gray fabric and some other bits of fabric which hopped into the basket all by themselves.
Master asked me to make him a bag for his birthday that’s big enough to transport his laptop. I decided on Parson Gray, designed by David Butler (Amy Butler husband) because I thought they would be nice and manly. I love them so much I want to keep them for myself but won’t, of course. I’m just waiting for some waterproof rucksack material before starting on the bag. I prefer doing it all in one go rather than a little here and a little there.
These are the fabrics that somehow made it into my shopping basket. Some LouLouThi Curated Bloom by Anna Maria Horner and some Gypsy Girl Diamond by Lily Ashbury for Moda. The first is supposed to be turned into a top for me (as soon as I get my overlocker) while the latter is going to be cut up into squares for a patchwork quilt in green, yellow and some pops of blue.
Don’t tell anyone but I ordered some more fabric today. I’ll show you what it is when it arrives in a couple of days.
