Julie at justjulielou suggested that she and I have a swap of 5" squares,
she would send me Anna Maria Horner in exchange for
Kaffe Fassett Collective fabrics
and just look at the lovely selection she sent.
I have only a handful of AMH fabrics in my stash
but I've cut 5" squares (below) from those to add to the swap
from Julie, along with more from different designers.
I'm thinking of a throw size quilt and luckily I have
a few Amy Butler, Heather Ross, Victoria Findlay Wolfe
plus other designers to add to the mix.
I'm cutting 2" squares from my Jinny Beyer fabrics, these
will be going into the quilt.
Remember my KF teapots??
Three for the second row now all appliqued, two
more rows to go and then a hunt for the perfect sashing and border.
I've also found a few quiet minutes to wander in the garden, lots of roses beginning
to bloom, I was surrounded by the scent from all these
I love this very soft pink/peach David Austin - sadly I've forgotten
Another favourite are my Rugosas,
below is the bud of Rugosa 'Alba'
here she is below fully open, a single Rugosa.
in all her glory
with her glorious perfume. Open the garden gate into
the back garden and you're in heaven!!
These roses are very, very hardy - no wonder because they
have the most lethal prickles I've ever seen, even Leila
doesn't try to chew these stems!
