Part of me was proud that she had the uber good taste to choose Shelburne Falls. Another part of me wanted to scream NO THAT's MINE. But I held that part inside. And so voila a Shelburne Falls skirt all made and isn't she proud.
Twin 2 likes to be warm and cosy which required a more sizeable raid on the stash. Ruthlessly and recklessly she hacked into Denyse Schmidt, Pat Bravo, Lizzie House, Basic Grey, Sweetwater, Echino and many other precious pieces. Very bravely, I never once said no (except when she grabbed some Liberty lawn and then I confess I did draw a little line in the sand).
She chose a backing made from a nice piece of Quilt Blocks yardage which I had earmarked for something else (but that's OK). And, taking advantage of two days unexpected holiday when the school flooded, she die cut 5" squares, sewed them into 16-patches, sashed with some Timeless Treasures sketch, sewed the whole thing together with the backing, inserted a duvet inside and HEY PRESTO, brightly coloured, beautifully patchworky, homemade comfort.
