..... Oh Yes I Am.
It's happened again
I've embarked upon another project
it is a very VERY pretty project though .....
|Smitten flower number one|
The Smitten quilt
I saw this a while back on Instagram
(as is often the case for me lately ..... there is just too much beautiful inspiration over there!)
and fell head~over~heals in love with it.
The pattern is by Lucy Carson Kingwell
I got my pattern and pre~cut paper pieces bundle from here
I searched online for ever but couldn't find it in the UK
it could well be different now though.
I'm adding my own twist on it
using only Liberty of London Tana lawn for the 'flowers'
and a very neat script fabric ~ Moda daysail tiny script
for the outline of each 'flower'
hoping that when the quilt is complete
the flowers will stand out and blow my mind!
I'm hoping they will all come together nicely
I'm a little worried about the angles of the script when the flowers eventually meet up
but I'm thinking that it'll all be ok.
This was my first choice of outline fabric
I then changed my mind and unpicked it and went for the
tiny script fabric which I think works better
I've only ever worked with hexagons before
so it's been fun to try out new shapes
and see them all fit magically together.
I had such a heavenly time sorting through my V. precious Liberty stash
and making pretty collections
ready for each flower
it really was the loveliest pastime
After flower one was complete
I was itching to start number two yesterday
and it did not disappoint!
there is just something about Liberty prints that makes my heart sing
they are just astoundingly beautiful

Thank you so very VERY much for the overwhelming interest in my
Butterfly art canvases
they sold out in lightning quick time
I am SO happy about that
and goodness it was exciting!
I hope to make some more in the coming weeks
and maybe some smaller ones too
(in fact I have so many butterfly ideas in my mind that I can't fit much else in there!)
Well I shall
thanks for popping by
