After much deliberation yesterday I decided to open one of these.....
|Quilt kits from Kim Porter at Worn and Washed Fabrics|
I resisted opening the packs when they were first purchased and rifling through them and I am so glad that I did.
I have opened the smaller pack on the left, stroked all the fabrics, ironed them and laid out how I want them to go together.
All of the fabrics are found and restored mainly from charity shops and in the pack I have opened I can see pieces from shirts and bedding.
They have all been hot washed before being co-ordinated into colour themes and when I was ironing them I was transported by the smell to my Grandma's back room where I used to sit and watch her do the ironing.
The pinned strips are laying over a chair in the dining room and I can still smell that gorgeous smell.
I can't wait to get this one sewn together and will make start on it this afternoon.
Other stuff to do first including some food shopping and a bit of charity shop browsing. I need a couple of new books and I am also looking for a flanelette sheet to back the quilt with...preferably an old one with a blue pattern. I do have a back up plan if I can't find one but I really would like that sheet.
DD is on annual leave this week and was hoping for more gardening time but if the weather carries on like this that won't be happening..........I'll find her something to do....lol.
Right I shall go and hoof her off the sofa so we can go and get this shopping done.
Have a lovely day.
