Generosity Abounds

This blog post is long overdue and I feel terrible it has taken me so long to take these photos. Given today is a bit gloomy we are all stuck indoors but it gave me the perfect opportunity to capture these images and to say 'Thank you'.

Most of us all know how wonderful this blog world is, and some of you may already be aware of the extremely talented Liz over at broderie. A couple of posts ago I mentioned how I adore Liberty fabrics and I have a quilt in mind that I would love to make using them, but haven't quite got a collection going as yet.

But with enormous thanks to Liz and her generosity, now I have.......



Just a couple of my favourites..........




adorable........




here is the full 'collection'...........




 Liz said they were scraps, I don't think so........






 I just love them!!! all of them!!!!

Now the first quilt I have in mind is the 'Mitali' (no picture sorry) quilt, using squares of Liberty fabric and Linen sashings, which can be purchased from Amitie.

And if I have some left, which I should, I have this triangle quilt in mind.......

I can't wait to start........

I can't thank Liz enough for sending me her scraps. I hope she realises they mean alot to me and look forward to showing her (and perhaps stitching with her) the quilt soon.

Go make yourself a cuppa, sit down and check out her blog broderie, its a visual delight! (oh, and arm yourself with your credit card as its really hard to go past the patterns she sells!).

Thanks again Liz.

Happy Stitching,
Susie
