And so for those of you not on instagram (if not, why not?), I'm lilysquilts over there. So this week, I got my hands on the latest issue of Quilt Now with my quilt on the cover made from Cherie by the very lovely Frances Newcombe. There are so many gorgeous prints in that line and many which I need to stash for future projects.
Next up was the quilt I made for Makower using their new cats line. Now I will confess right now that I'm not the biggest cat fabric fan but these are very cute and quite cartoony, not at all naff or kitsch. Also they have a really lovely colour palette. First is the design I drew up on Touchdraw
Second is the quilt itself, hanging over my quilt-hanging fence.
And third is the quilting - this time a way cross hatch using my go-to quilting thread - a cream Aurifil 50wt.
Later on in the week I had a surprise parcel from Oakshott. There is little to beat a surprise delivery from Oakshott. This time it was a FQ and an F8th bundle of their new Scandinavia line - woven with a cream thread, these colours are impossibly gentle and beautifully low volume.
And the second was made from some vintagey fabrics from Polka Dot Tea fabrics in Australia.
See you next week!
