As soon as I saw Anna Maria Horner's new line Loulouthi I was in love, those huge print in gorgeous saturated colours made my heart flutter. The fat quarter bundle I ordered arrived on Saturday and I've been itching to play with it.
Fat Quarterly that was made entirely in solids, called Bob by Chawne Kimber. I thought it was the perfect pattern for me. Yesterday morning was spent cutting up the fabrics and when I got home from work last night I arranged all the blocks on the living room floor and took a photo for reference.
This morning I have been sewing up a storm and "Wild Bob" is pieced!
I LOVE it!!! I threw in a little bit of linen and some shot cottons to tone things down slightly, and I'm really glad I did. I can't wait to quilt it. I think I'm going to quilt in the ditch and then break out some of these gorgeous perle cottons to emphasise some of the beautiful large prints.
I've already cut the leftovers into strips for a scrappy border.
Now I really better go and tidy up the breakfast dishes before I pick up my children from school!
