Attractive Handmade Decorations for the Home

It does what it says on the tin (or quilt)

The weather’s on a bit of a crash course at the moment – we’re due for a day of wet weather and I think Sunday will be the only respite we get.  Lots of indoor stuff this weekend I think!

A couple of weeks ago I was on a mission to make a quilt (a simple one).  Not wanting to spend a lot on supplies, I turned to what I had in my workroom.

Cerise pink fabric was left over from a cushion and other things I had made.

Candy stripe sheet was from a vintage fair.

Floral sheets were from a charity shop.

The size was very much determined by the floral sheet as I decided that I would use that as the reverse.  So actually the size is only really a double.

I did have to but some lovely wadding to go between the 2 layers, but I needed some anyway so the remaining will be used for other projects.

I completed it last week, just prior to our trip to London, and I love it.  To coin a phrase ‘it does what it says on the tin’.  It’s fulfilled exactly what I wanted it to.  Re-using fabric and sheets.

(An iron’s required I think)

Right, onto planning the next project!

Enjoy the weekend!
