I bought fabric and made this…
This quilt will be my mum’s Christmas present this year. I wasn’t sure how long it would take me to make, hence starting it in plenty of time. You never know what’ll happen to distract you from the task in hand, after all! Fortunately it didn’t take very long at all. If you know my mother, please don’t mention it.
Yes, Aunty M. I’m talking to you. Amongst others.
If you’re interested the tutorial can be found at Moda Bake Shop where there are so many creative ideas that I wish I had time to do them all! The kit containing much of what you need to make it can be found at The Quilt Shoppe, one of my newest favourite haunts. Even though it’s across the Atlantic I still find it very cost effective (read as “much cheaper”) to have the fabrics shipped over than to buy it here in the UK. Also the service is fantastic. And no, I don’t have a personal interest or know anyone to do with the shop – I just think a place we’re happy with should be mentioned.
I’m now waiting on some more fabric to arrive for a couple more projects. I’ve no set pattern to work with for these but have a few ideas in mind.
So that’s the first handmade gift this year. Hopefully I’ll have some more things to show you in due course. Do you have any ideas for me to try?
