Vintage Fabric Love!

A while ago I mentioned I was taking part in a vintage fabric swap organised by my friend Mary. A after giving Mary about 62 fat quarters of fabric, today I collected my swaps. What a fantastic selection! The other swappers were from as far afield as USA, Switzerland and Ireland. It’s so nice to have such a unique collection. Thank you one all all (especially Mary!)

New year and a new challenge

I have set myself the challenge this spring to make another quilt. I’ve only made one before and that was this simple strip quilt.

I spotted this lovely looking tutorial which is a step up in terms of size and skill. I’m using the same fabric, which is called seaside. So my challenge is to get it made before the summer. I have all my fat quarters washed, ironed and ready to go!
