So: this year I WILL:
- Make a quilt to cover the living room sofa using this.....
...or maybe this....
- Make a wonky star cushion cover
- Find a suitable use for these pieces of 1950s and 60s loveliness .....
- Hone my (basic) paper piecing skills - and I have a project in mind. I suddenly had an idea the other night for a paper-pieced crab, I don't know why, and spent a lot of time yesterday trying to work out how I would do such a thing. Here are my sketches.
Hi there - I love those 60s/50s fabrics too! I look forward to seeing what you come up with for them, and how the crab progresses.ReplyDelete
Well, I have this great suggestion of what you can do with those 50s-60s fabrics - send them to me!!! Please....??? I feel quite spooked looking at your fabrics - we have lots in common, it could be my stash you've been photographing. I love those French General prints... Your crap looks ace - great idea, go for it!ReplyDelete
That top photo shows just about my favourite colour combination! Would make a lovely quilt. And your 50s/60s fabrics are beautiful! I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with them, and your hexagon crabs!ReplyDelete
Love those 50s/60s fabrics too, sure you will come up with something good to do with them, but in the meantime just enjoy having them!ReplyDelete
