Both layer cakes have been washed this morning and this is the resulting ball of fluff that was the frayed edges -
|That's one big ball of fluff!|
Even the fluff looks all nice and pretty! The Sunkissed fabric is the chosen one to become my first quilt. It's a beautiful range of pastels, and the designs on the fabric are gorgeous. Here's a sample of a few -
This gives a really good idea of how my finished quilt will look, I wanted something with pastels that wouldn't take over the whole room, this combination of colours and patterns is so subtle yet will result in a beautiful quilt. I can't wait to make a start. I'll be ironing the fabric as soon as it's dry...then deciding how to cut it up so I can re-assemble it into a quilt top. I think I'll probably cut each piece into quarters then piece them back together randomly to have a complete chequerboard look. Nice and simple for my first go.
This fabric also appears in several colours throughout the layer cake -
Isn't it lovely? It features definitions of other 'positive' words like life, hope and grow.
I've also been working on some new additions to my Folksy shop. I have added a few more phone/ipod/gadget cases. This time I tried some different designs and I'm really pleased with them. Here's a peek -
