Rustique by Emily Herrick for Michael Miller


Rustique by Emily Herrick for Michael Miller




A collection containing my favourite things at the moment.
Woodland creatures picked out in super tangerine, fushia, aubergine & teal.
A great way to introduce a little bit of a solid tangerine or aubergine as punch of a colour.
Stag heads and more stag heads.
Look closer at the grey embossed one......
These will be making an appearance on my cushion covers on the sofa, and a re-covering of the footstool....

Arriving Sept / Oct 
To start I have chosen my favourite six to start from the rustic colour way.
even though it comes in 2 colour ways and 24 fabrics in total.
If anybody is desperate for another colour way or fabric let me know.

Mini Pinwheel Quilt

Mini Pinwheel Quilt

In a pinwheel type design

19" x 19"

I used 5 10" squares cut into 4 strips each 2.5"
sewed the 4 setsthen sewed the 4 together, trimmed.
On hindsight I should have make the strips 2", then when trimed up looked even.
But was playing and now have a table topper or dolly quilt sized quilt!

I quilted it in the round square! from the middle out
