While out quilt shop hopping with Rosie, Sandra and Andrea I fell in love with this Flea Market fabric range. I had seen it a few times and had resisted purchase by asking myself what I was going to use it for. Aha! I will select a few pieces for sashing etc for the 1950s dresses quilt! Don't the colours look yummy?
There seem to be a few extra bits and pieces in the box I have also delegated to this quilt project. Except for the green I got them all in a scrap bag for only $5!! Poor unwanted things, I will love you!
I am thinking I might combine the stitchery blocks with Maverick stars and just "build it and see". I don't have a design wall (yet), so I can't just let it grow on the wall. I am rubbing my hands with glee!
I know this rearranges the list of 4, but I can't work on the French Stitchery quilt if i haven't got the fabric can I?
New list in no particular order:
- Chicken Soup
- Red, white, yellow cherries (I must be getting bored with this one - actually I need workspace for basteing).
- 1950s dresses
- Civil war hexagons (I am bored of this one today, but need to keep handwork on the list).
