So how cool does my scoobs look!!! I am getting a bit concerned that he is liking this outfit a bit too much! Bless his wee cotton socks he wanted to cheer folks up, he got this outfit out for a photo competition for work and then wanted to use it for his awesome #husbandsholdingquilts action!!
I have made this pattern before (with much muttering and swearing ...) when it was first released in parts in quiltmania. I realise now how much my piecing has advanced because the small teeny pieces didnt phase me as much as they did the last time around.
I met Nicolapicola at the FOQ last year and when i heard she was hosting a sew along for this i thought "why not!"
I decided to use up my Lucy Engels scraps which were left over from my OMCOC quilt.
I have wanted to make these Sarah Ashford mini balloons for ages, they came as a bonus with her up and away quilt pattern. I have seen others use this too, what a lovely way to use her super pattern!
How cute are these Doric text panels? I got a Doric tote bag from Bramble graphics last year at a christmas fair in Aberdeen. Such happy memories of that visit. I cut up the bag and used the text panels in the quilt.
A fly cup and a funcy piece. A fly cup is a cup of tea or coffee, sometimes had on the fly (quickly instead of sitting down) I often remember my gran saying "have ye had yer fly?" meaning have you had your afternoon or morning coffee. A funcy piece is a nice cake or biscuit as opposed to a plain biscuit like a rich tea or digestive.
Lucy released her tulips fabric just in time for me to incorporate them into this quilt, they were perfect for fussycutting for the dresden hill block.
