My dear friend has waited 51 years to meet the right man, and I was able to attend her bridal shower on Saturday. We have a personal joke about aprons, so I made her my typical Lotta Jansdotter apron, and a HER and HIM pillow. Her tastes are all over the map and she’s fun, so I went with this idea I had. I loved how the lion is gazing at her.
There are some fabrics I used that I might perish when they are used up. The Alexander Henry Sun Signs panel. It’s impossible to find now. I’ve used it before for this little girl birthday pillow. (BTW Does anyone know the name of the large purple flower fabric?) And the Alexander Henry Decor fabric is a favorite for pillow backs. It’s so versatile.
The Alexander Arvika in black and white…only bits left.
The Denyse Schmidt Flea Market Fancy Barbell in yellow that I traded most away for who knows what. What was I thinking? Not to mention the black and white little abstract squares with the lines…anyone know the name?
Oh, It’s just fabric, but you know when it speaks to you?
Like these two Amy Butler’s, draped together on my chair, waiting to go to a swap partner. I was inspired.
Paired perfectly for my nine-patch. I haven’t forgotten you either nine-patch. I’ve been slowly collecting and swapping for the Amy Butler Charm that I didn’t have stashed.
Unfortunately, my one a day nine-patch is more of a two a month, but it’s working out for us.
Happy Monday! I have to go work on Wedding Quilts.
