My Liberty of London goodies came and Oh My Word was I excited!
I am "That girl" the one that gets excited about packaging :)
It also tickled me that they sent the shop bag with an online order so I could give them as a gift (if I was out of my mind) to a like minded packaging fool, it makes me feel better that I can't be the only one!
These were nestled under a layer of tissue and I nearly tore a nail off in my rush to get them opened up.
Liberty patchwork bundles are the way forward.
I went totally Gollum at this point.
Pressed and hung up so I could see all the pretties together.
Once I'd calmed myself down I set to trimming them, they come fairly wonky as the photo below shows.
It does however mean I now have a fair bit of Liberty in my scrap bin :D
The point of the purchase (other than to pet the pretty fabric) is to make an heirloom style quilt for our bed.
A giant log cabin design is where it is all headed, under the watchful big eyes of some Blythe dolls and a hanging Santa butt.
After some thought and conversation it was agreed that the pattern is a good use of the fabric and still has the "vintage quilt" style we wanted for the bedroom.
I am really pleased I managed to get the red centre in the cabin :)
And this is how it's been left for this evening, I can't wait to get started on it again tomorrow after work!
