I had already cut into some of the fabrics; I was lucky enough to be sent yardage of all the prints a couple of weeks ago, but I got on with cutting the rest and started sewing last night. I will go into the whys and wherefores of the pattern I chose when it is finished and I present the grand reveal; this morning I finished the top!
To say I am thrilled to bits with how it is looking so far, is an understatement. The rainy-day backlit photo does it no justice whatsoever, but I wanted to give you a peek at the loveliness to come because I am just so happy with it.
In making the quilt top, rulers were hurt though!
Fortunately the lovely old-lady sewing shop in the village came to the rescue - I picked up a new Sewline 12.5" square for £17, which is not only a total bargain, but meant it was in my hands instantly; no postal delay, unlike the bloody stuffing!
What I did receive through the mail instead were Cindy's blocks for my LV Stitch Tease Scrap Vomit...
Lovely, fresh from the envelope, creases n' all, oops, sorry!
I also nipped out in the rain and delivered the bunting to my friend's new house and received the grand tour; it's a beautiful place.
And and and...
