When One Thing Leads To Another

So, Di pointed me towards  post by Madeline Bea photography... I looked at the images and just adored them for many reasons.  Here are some of them:

Love the dreamy spring/summer afternoon-ish quality of them, the girls dressed in light airy summer clothes topped with a cowboy hat (just the sort of thing my kids wear on a summers day! ;-) that , or nothing!)

But particulary, I love the little quilt, and its strips of colours.  So much so, I went straight to ebay and bought this:

Its called a Jelly Roll, and the material comes pre cut into 2.5" strips (two of each different fabric) the width of the fabric roll.  All I have to do is sew em together, quilt and bind.  AND I have a couple of old truly vintage embroidered pillowslips from when I was a baby that will perfectly go with these combinations of fabrics.  I am not sure quite what I will do with them all when I am finished (apart from a cute photo shoot!) but I am thinking as a throw on a day bed on the verandah would be very cute!

So, I'm looking forward to the mail in the next few days, waiting for this parcel to come in!  (and a cd in the mail from Di too, should she EVER get to the post office!) Gotta love the internet, not sure how I managed to get by without shopping online ever before! ;-)


  1. Ooo looks devine. Where my cd Di? I still owe you one too Sharon.
    Sorry not in scrap mode. Can't wait to see the blanket!

  2. The fabric is gorgeous Sharon ... looking forward to seeing the end results - photos and quilt!
    Internet shopping makes the world a much smaller place - especially when you are out in the sticks :-)

  3. I love quilting but am clueless about putting the fabrics together what a great idea buying the precut patches...can't wait to see the finished product
