Dimestore

With all the busyness of eisteddfods and the end of term and the accompanying tiredness which always seems to envelop me, I missed the August Schnibble Parade over on Sherri and Sinta's blogs. Therefore 2 weeks late I present Dimestore.


I LOVED making this little quilt.


I used my favourite red on white spot from the Sweet Shoppe range for the background ...


and lots of pinks and reds for the sashings and blocks.


The pinks and reds are mostly Lakehouse fabrics including Annie's Farm Stand ... 
 

and Pam Kitty Morning.


There's also a little bit of Flower Sugar by Lecien.



 Where the blocks intersect, I used a spotty Japanese fabric that I purchased at the Sydney Craft and Quilt Fair from a store called Kelani.


So now I am waiting for this month's pattern to arrive. We are making Speck, one of Carrie's new Little Bites patterns.


After a few requests, I have turned off Comment Verification so I hope that makes it easier for those of you that were struggling with it. Have a great day.

  10. Your version of Dimestore turned out fabulous. The pokadot background fabric is what makes the quilt outstanding. Congradulations of finishing.
