The problem with new fabric is that it inspires you to start new projects, and not work on the ones you really need to get finsihed. eg: Mum's birthday quilt top.
Miss B has a birthday in a weeks time, she has already received part of her gift - a new duvet set that is no longer little girlish or bright coloured. She has a love of feathers, so last night while lying in bed, thinking about my new AMH fabrics, I thought they would be perfect as feathers, and of course they will eventually work with her new quilt that I am making
A few strips of fabric later, with some contrasting blues and aquas mixed in, a little cutting and sewing, I have three down sized AMH feathers. Two are going to be used in a pillow for her birthday, and the third, I'll keep to put in her sampler quilt. All going well there will be a pillow given to her soon, as long as I remember to measure twice and cut once - currently I am unpicking the border that is too short.
Looking forward to seeing this finished in real life - cos in my mind it looks fabulous.
