More finishes.. and gorgeous new fabrics

So I’ve been busy finishing a few things over the weekend. There’s some quilted Ruby Star Spring, made up into a pencil case – this fabric is such a pleasure to work with, I can’t tell you.

Some cute Kokka matryoshkas – I liked this idea (combining the lovely linen with a red and white polka dot) so much, I made two…

And here’s a bit of an experiment with a Kaffe Fassett charm square that I’ve had lying around for ages, and some Japanese woven cotton I picked up at the Festival of Quilts:

These will all end up in my Folksy shop (and probably on Etsy too) when I can get round to the slightly tedious process of listing them… Who would have thought I used to do listing for a living…


Look at these!

Lovely Lou Lou Thi and Klona from River Fabrics

Aren’t they lovely? The prints are from Lou Lou Thi by Anna Maria Horner, and the 2 solids are Klona cottons. They’re all from River Fabrics – and I was hugely impressed by the help I had from them in choosing the colours combination, and in the next day delivery too. Lovely. Some of this is destined to make a commissioned Art Wrap, and I’m wondering what to do with the rest… Happy thoughts! Hope your Monday evening is full of happy thoughts too, fabric-related or otherwise…

  1. Oh i love the russian dolls and polka dot mix purse… i need to be more adventuorous to try and mix fabrics i don’t think will go together at first! Great combination!!

  2. Great use of a spare charm square – I always end up with randoms and never think to do simple bold appliqué on a plain! Lovely!!

  3. Gorgeous! I’m in love with Ruby Star Rising too, made a piped cushion cover the other week and it handles soooo beautifully. I love those pouches, I must tackle inserting zips at some stage. Do you use a zipper foot?

    1. Yep – zipper foot all the way. I’ve had masses of practice with zips now, and they still go wrong sometimes… With the Ruby Star pouch I managed to sew one of the pieces of the lining into the zip. Doh!
