Orla Kiely Inspired

Take some Robert Kaufman Quilters linen
(received these in the post yesterday from USA, and I am not disappointed)
Purchased from freshsqueezedfabrics at etsy
They are 100% quilters cottons, with a printed linen look, wonderful.
They came to $44.00 (£28.00) for the 8 1/2 yards!!
$61.44 (Under £40.00 including delivery).
I thought I would have to pay extra on import duties, but somehow they managed to pass though and land on my mat.

Inspired by this, Orla Kiely

One fab pattern from The sometimes crafter
Retro Flower Quilt pattern
Which I purchased last week, ready to go,
 I will use as a base but turn all the petals in the same direction
To get this ish, which may or may not have black lines
Also will have rounder petals
(but anyway its the inspiration)
The fabrics close up, aren't they just scrummy.


  1. Wow! I love the fabrics and I love the pattern!

  2. Oh, beautiful linen. Glad you didn't get stung by the customs folks. I've been ogling that quilt recently - it's one of my favourites. :-)
