Spotted: That's right... BASICGREY now has it's own fabric (a la Urban Couture...) with the queen fabricators - MODA. Not one to shun anything BasicGrey, I may have to redeem my quilting books and high power vacuum the dust from them.
I do own a handmade quilt which sits like a period piece from Ideal Home, at the end of my thick pine bed posts. It was a Wedding Prezzie from a wonderful American *grandma* I knew back in my "living in Turkey" days... Karen Black - and it is a family heirloom now. It goes camping, cuddling on the sofa, and replaces our goose down duvet when it gets a little 'warm' (would say hot... but we are talking about a UK summer here ;) Would I try to create something with this fabric?! Probably not... BUT I have a great friend who made quilts for each of my babies when they were born, and she would *adore* this fabric to toy with. Her home is Laura Ashley and John Lewis - the perfect fit :)
Ok - heels on, camera in my bag... map... and off we go!
