Oliver’s quilt, part one.

Obviously, the first and most logical thing to do when in the process of a sewing room revamp is to …. go and buy some delicious fabric!

orange and aqua stack

This was the final pick, after much umming and erring, from today’s trip to the shop. I had to leave a blue chevron and an amazing red/orange circle fabric behind. 😦 The multicoloured chevron was a last minute pick up at the counter, where they have baskets of fat quarters to make impulse purchases that much easier! These fabrics are destined to be part of a quilt for my brand new nephew, Oliver, who was born yesterday at the same time as I was umming and erring. Of course, now that I’ve got my precious fabrics home, I’ve completely changed my mind about the design of the quilt and I’m going to have to raid my (limited) stash to find some more coordinates. (I feel like a proper quilter!). I’m itching to get started.
