The British are Coming

the minute I saw those fabrics on the FatQuarter Shop website, I KNEW I HAD to have them! 

they duly arrived and I pondered what I was going to do with them...

and so whilst I sorted, stroked, folded and categorised my hoard in the studio, they got separated and 'filed' ...

and then over the weekend I got my edition of FatQuarterly 10 ... and I KNEW what I was going to do with them!

so i rushed back into the 'store' and grabbed them back out, I knew where they were, I'd only just put them there!  and on Saturday night a cut  ...

and Sunday ... a lovely pleasant Summers Day ... I stitched ...


and I quilted ...


and I stitched some more  ...


and finished this in no time at all ...


sometimes fabric just speaks, hell, it yells buy me!


you can see why, can't you!


Thanks to Kristin Danis (kd-quilts) for the pattern and the FatQuarterly team for giving me the inspiration to do something quick, easy, and done in a day!

and it felt soooooo Good to be back in my groove!

It looks fab! That line screamed at me too, and I'm determined to use it to make a laptop bag to take to Sewing Summit...
