Yes, it rained on my party! It was sunny the day before, and (mostly) the day afterwards. Everyone started arriving at about 4 pm, and by 5 pm we’d all retreated indoors. But …. despite (or maybe because of) the weather, it was a very good party (even though I say so myself!). I meant to take lots of photos to show, but completely forgot to do so … all I can share is a picture of the buffet table – and even that is covered up to protect it from floating newfie-hair! But I’ll show you anyway:
Possibly one of the least exciting pictures I’ve ever shared! Much nicer is this shot of the beautifully cheery sunflowers Rosie brought for me ..
In a vintage enamel jug in the perfect position on the turn of the stairs. One of my party guests was my friend Carolyn who is expecting a baby daughter in November. She lives in Dubai, but is back in England for a few weeks, visiting friends and family. I’ll be going to visit her there towards the end of the year and want to make a quilt for her baby to take with me. So while she was here, I asked her to select some fabrics from my stash as I’d like her to have exactly what she wants and also I don’t want to spend a lot of time making something she won’t like. Here are her choices …..
They’re not a selection I would have picked – but they work really well together I think – clearly Carolyn has an eye for colour. She’d like lots of white too, and a modern pattern with (sob) no embroidered details. And this is where I need a bit of help please. I’m not an expert quilter (as you know!) and so I wondered if anyone could suggest a modern cot quilt design that you think would work well with these fabrics? And that is not too complicated for me to attempt! Any suggestions would be very gratefully received!
