Blogger Bundle Close Up

My blogger bundle arrived from Fat Quarter Shop a few days ago- what can I say, I love it!


With this bundle I was aiming to create a balance of light/mid/dark tones, plus some text and feature prints.  I think I did it.  One print is missing- this Sweetwater print was one of my choices but supplies ran out at the shop so I think I will buy some and add it in.


The Heather Bailey ginger buttercup print is such a great colour with its yarrow gold and the graphic flowers- perfect for fussy cut English Paper piecing as it can create kaleidoscopic effects.


This made me laugh, I wasn't expecting this particular style of presentation! (picture from the Fat Quarter Shop).


And this is where the bundle is going, into my ongoing Glitter quilt.  I am fussy cutting each centre with various novelty prints in my stash and mixing this bundle along with anything else that comes to hand.  All hand pieced and a real pleasure to sew.  The variety of fabrics keeps my eyes happy when sewing the same block over and over.

  2. Both fabric bundles and blocks are just so, YOU! I love visiting everyone's bundles and checking in their choices of fabrics! I love some of the basic prints, dots, stripes, and checks in the blocks. That really reflect the other ones well! :) Thank you for sharing~
