Mini Stash Sale

Last weekend our eldest daughter and son moved into their new house. This means (after a little bit of paint) I will have my own sewing room. So I now need to tame my fabric stash, in doing so I have come across some fabrics that will need to find new homes. These orphanes are on sale at Somerset Patchwork.

Happy Shopping

Look what followed me home

These fabrics are part of a range called 1810 Chintz Medallion from the Virginia Quilt Museum.These arrived  at Somerset Patchwork Thursday morning and caused quite a stir, as each box was opened the excitement level rose.And even now they are keeping me awake.

Birthday Quilt

This quilt I have made for my sisters birthday. Large squares of shot cottons with some pattern as well.The idea was for it to look like a persian rug background with butterflies.

 I even managed some hand quilting with pearl thread.

This is the fabric the butterflies have come from a linen print.It also has bugs and caterpillars. Thanks to Effie I found it at Patchwork on Central Park. Also thanks to Dorothy and her suggestion I managed to bag the quilt with out to much drama. Can you see the differance with the photos.

Happy Sewing
