Ahh, that feels better...
I never thought two years ago that I would become so obsessed with little bits of cloth. But these days I can tell my Michael Miller from my Tula Pink and my Joel Dewberry from my Amy Butlers - I'm not sure whether to be proud or slightly ashamed of my geekiness when it comes to fabric!?
Over a short period of time I've managed to accumulate quite a collection of my favourite pieces, but there is one fabric designer whose fabrics all seem to be winners. Kate Spain makes the most beautiful designs.
So, about 2 years ago I bought a pre-cut quilt kit from Kate Spain's Terrain collection.
Facebook friends - I finally made a start.
As predicted, I did make a mistake when trying to follow the pattern. But hopefully no-one but me will ever notice. This is what the finished item should have looked like....
There's still a long way to go (and my bags have been a little bit neglected lately!), but it's been really fun to play with lots of different coloured fabrics (with maybe enough offcuts to make a patchwork bag or two!) and hopefully by next weeks Handmade Monday I'll be able to show you what mine looks like.
