The addition to my stash this week though has come from Liberty of London. We were there a short time ago for a hen party and the bride to be mentioned she had popped into Liberty and bought some fabric. And ... they had a fabric sale on! In the spirit of bonding, she walked with us as far as Regent Street the next day. We said our farewells. I think it may have been a test to see did I "nip into Liberty just for a minute". Or as we say in Norn Ireland, "to see what the craic is".
Three metres of tana lawn for £36. You can't be bad to that. It is an oatmeal background with a lovely purple or lilac rose. Very 1940s tea dress.
My daughter fancies a simple summer dress. It would need to be simple if I am making it. Round necked, sleeveless, A line skirt. Take it as read this is for next summer, she may not realise that. There was a "nice" dress pattern instore, a blogger pattern, Claudette, or Chloe. I can't quite remember. But, it was £18 for the pattern! Now I am not a skinflint but I did think that it was a little pricey, even if it is on trend. I know this has been carefully crafted and all the rest of it, but £18 for a pattern!
Stash out this week, is continuing to be pretty much the wedding quilt. I have given up counting squares. I kept churning them out last week and have finally mastered the geese. I'm quite the little goose girl now. Blue geese and green geese, flying every which way.
Now the time has come to start putting this masterpiece together. At the minute its a bit like 52 card pickup as was suggested to me. Its going to be rather like a jigsaw fitting all the different sizes into each other. I have decided to, as far as possible, make up smaller units. These smaller units will then be sewn together, hopefully avoiding too many Y seams. In fact Y seams might be OMG, one month goal, for July. Feel the fear and do it anyway. I've conquered the fear of geese.
So far I have sewn together the best part of the first row.
The second photo shows the next unit of one large, four tiny and one medium blocks ready to be slotted in.
Speaking of geese, Sandra published her blog post of making my mini mini quilt, Flashing Geese. Check it out, she says lovely things about me! I forgot to say in my post last week, Sandra always adds the initial of the recipient. There is the tiniest H in the bottom pale pink goose. To be strictly honest, I forgot to look until Tish reminded me.
