Some serious eye candy!

Oooh how exciting, my order from equilter arrived! Thanks OzCountry Tracey for the tip-off :) I am planning to make a 'big girl's' quilt for Romily for when she moves into a single bed next year some time.

As you can see from my wild, fresh and funky fabrics, I may have to buy a couple of more subtle background fabrics, as I don't want the effect to be too riotous!

And, as you can also see, Bashka has adopted the fabric as his own - as many quilting cats seem to across Blogland!

We are all well and truly on the road to recovery, which is a huge relief! Fortunately Carl wasn't as sick as Romily and I were, so we are all feeling much better, with residual coughs and runny noses the only remaining 'issues'. We hope that by the time the weekend is out we are all back to 100%. I have Monday as a holiday (just because), so it's a lovely long weekend for us. I hope to get some more work done on my Starry Night project and get all this lovely new fabric washed and pressed ready to go. I have drawn up my own pattern, based on some simple Japanese blocks that Fairybread Jenni posted a photo of some time ago. This is going to be my 'long-term' project, which I'll work on over the next 12 months or so.

That is gorgeous fabric and so appropriate for your sweet little girl. Can't wait to see what you'll make with it.

Cute kitty!

The fabric is wonderful and "seriuos eye candy" is SO true! Any little girl would love that fabric made up into a quilt. I have been around "men" too long...poor Charlotte. I do not have the talent to pick fabric and would not have been able to put that all together. I pick one fabric and work around that one. You did a great job pulling all of those together They are
fabulous. "Think girlie, Bren!"

Hi Lily,

Just had a flick through your blog and had to say hi - we have a few things in common!!

I recently read Saturday and also really enjoyed it - a bit of an unexpected page-turner in the middle. Also I have the softies pattern for kitty, bunny and bear by Hillary Lang but haven't yet tried them - I will after seeing yours.

Love the new fabrics!
Cheers

Nice material - they'll make a lovely big girl bed. I like your kitties too - I'm another one with an untouched pattern :) I like the furry kitty too :)

Bright, zingy zangy fabrics for a gorgeous girl (and Bashka looks good too). The more I look at him the more I am sure our two moggies have Bengal in there somewhere. Have a good week.

Judy said...

Wow, love the colors and the fabrics! This will be a very nice quilt for a big girl!

Laura said...

What great colors Lily! Romily's room will really be bright and welcoming! Love all the pictures you have been sharing. Romily is really growing up right before our eyes.
