This is the quilt that I made for Sharon over at Lilabelle Lane in Australia. Sharon loves Bliss fabric and showed hexies and trees in her mosaic. I bought a scrap bag of Bliss fabric, but unfortunately it was mainly selvedge and only a few designs wide enough for the border. I have bought 3 scrap bags and only one has been without the selvedge. I know it is luck of the draw when buying on line, but I will be checking next time. Has anyone else used Moda Scrap Bags?
It took ages to blanket stitch all of the letters and each one can flip up and has a flower on the back. The idea for this quilt was from Erin over at Why Not Sew? and she has some lovely things in her Etsy shop. I took the bird pattern from Erin's Christmas mini tutorial on the Quilt Story Blog, so if you fancy starting early for Christmas...........
.......and this morning mine arrived......I had hoped this one was for me...and when the "Security Declaration" also says "Chocolate"......I was v. excited. Thanks to Linda of Sew Nicely - it must have taken ages to piece all those little bits and the flag border complements it beautifully.
Look at me......2 posts in one morning.....but I had pre-written this one - thanks to Instagram for the "instant to Flickr" photos.
The rest of the day will be spent reading my new magazine and eating caramels....yummmmmmmmmyyyyy!
