Today my lovely bundle of pretty fabrics arrived in the post. It took me about two hours of browsing the fantastic Eternal Maker website to choose a selection of lovely materials to make us a big double quilt. At first I was looking for pre-cut collections of fabrics sold as a package, but I couldn’t find one that I was really happy with. So I decided to choose four fabrics reflecting me, and four reflecting my other half. I also ordered a few patterned and plain fabrics to act as fillers and potentially borders. All of them are colour coordinated with nice muted shades of turquoise being a running theme. So here are the fabrics – and if you don’t already know, I am a journalist and a bit of a geek, and my other half is in the Royal Air Force, has travelled a lot but still loves a good old British cup of tea more than anyone I’ve ever known.
And for him:
And for all the bits in between:
I can’t post without at least mentioning crochet, so I will just say that I’ve made a tail for dino-boy’s dino costume tonight, but after an 11-hour day at work followed by a two-mile run, proper progress will have to wait a little bit longer.
