I've been a bit of a naughty crafter. I think I need to go to a crafting confessional, but I suspect the queue will be SO long that I will just never get heard, so therefore I will confess to you :)
You know these sponsored ads that pop up all over your computer? (cleverly done and drag money from your purse) Well one popped up with a link to Craftsy and in particular a Robert Kaufman quilt kit.
Oh yeah...... bring it on.
Cheap too! Or so I thought. Cheap until the whopping great big postage went on just before pressing the "pay now" button.
So, sadly, I shut the page down. Wasn't going to pay all that postage - more than the kit was worth.
By then though, I had that fabric stuck firmly in my little crafters brain, and no amount of soup-making, baking, crocheting would take it away.
After a morning of Googling I realised that this fabric bundle was probably easily worth the money (including the postage) plus it came with a patchwork quilt tutorial. So I went back and bought it. Whoops!
Yesterday it arrived. What beautiful quality fabric, so wonderfully crisp and colourful.
I tried for AGES to get the ribbon undone without cutting it, my teeth were aching in the end so I had to give in and just take a pair of scissors to it.
Let me share the pieces with you. The last one is a larger piece as it makes up the sides of the quilt, all the rest are fat quarters. (approx 18" x 22")
Don't you agree that they are just divine? I really must start this project sometime soon.
If you fancy it yourself you can find the kit (fabric and downloadable pattern) here..... http://www.craftsy.com/supplies/rk-kit-lumina/3553
