Etsy Stitching

I found an unfinished patchwork quilt top ages ago and I was torn between making it up into a quilt or cutting it up,  in the end I decided I wasn't short of quilts so the scissors it was.  I love the cotton prints that the original maker used, 60's and 70's but the yellow hexagon is just the type of thing people like Lotta Jansdotter do now.  I made a few bags.

A bit of Jamieson's of Shetland Fair Isle knit.

An absolute stunner, this 1960's barkcloth reminds me of a Rothko painting, shaded red to orange to pink it's like a sunset.  With the very last of this fabric I made a few slim cases, which I'm quite into at the moment, good for pens or the bottom of your handbag!
