Ths is a lovely hand pieced baby quilt with flannelette backing and satin ribbon binding, made probably in the 50s or 60s I guess. I just couldnt resist it for a fiver!
Now for the Liberty love-
The darker piece my friend Susie ( more of her in a minute) donated to me- I bought the lighter piece along with these at the Clothkits shop. I paid full price so not so much a bargain rather more of a must have!
Now the bargain- the 2 pieces of red add up to 3.5 metres, and the blue is 3.5 metres- total of 7 metres, rough retail value £112, if it is £16 per metre- mine for £42 ! Brilliant for backing my Liberty patch quilts as they are large pieces.
Now for the piece de resistance! This gorgeous Liberty cross over drss with a double layer skirt all the way round must contain at least 3 metres of fabric if not 4- so approx 40 to 50 £ to by fabric-
Mine for the grand sum of £2.50p!!!!!!! Thats about 80p per metre!!!!
Feeling very smug......
And now back to my demented friend Susie who cannot get enough Kaffe fabric- one day they will lock her away! Anyway, she bought her latest batch and wanted me to run up some pillows-
here is the result!
They are gorgeous, but she just doesnt know when to stop!!
THats all folks, enjoy the sun! x
