Best of British


As the closing ceremony continues on the telly ... lets reflect a little





today it seems only fitting I was on my own cultural Olympic marathon of sorts ...





you know me ... when I get in my groove ...





so I started this morning ... with Lynne's Fat Jacks ...











and Summersville!





Yes I cut into the monstrous pile of gorgeousness!









I think Lucie was being subliminal when she designed this,


everyone should by Summersville imho!





and so, after a few hours ... I have The Best of British ...









Fat Jack Blocks designed by Lynne of Lilys Quilts, Derbyshire


Summersville designed by Lucie Summers, Suffolk (for Moda)


Pieced (and very soon to be quilted) by Me, Lincolnshire





72 x 84





British designers ... you're the best!

That looks so good with the Summersville prints, good for you to finish it so fast. And well done with the Olympics, a good time for all I think.
