Playing with 'vintage'

Another quilt is being planned - I honestly can't help myself. I guess when you're surrounded by fabric and creativity all day, 5 days a week it is easy to get carried away!

I wanted to make a quilt for my 'Ichi Ban' - a best friend to me. 

She has recently flown the nest and I thought a quilt would be a lovely house warming gift. She has a very unique style so instead of guessing I asked her to come in and pick one fabric I could start with.

She found two she loved...

Challenging at first but once Gina, Mum and I got into the swing of it we finally had ALL the fabrics I needed...

Can't wait to get this one started (but have to finish one or two first). Such a fun mix of prints and the colours are lovely and soft. I love all the vintage style floral prints!

I am going to turn this bundle into a version of 'Casual Comfort', one of our favourite patterns here at Amitie using a nice soft brown linen as the center square.
There are 3 kits available. If you're interested please call the shop on (03) 9557 8551 or e-mail:
