I recently won a giveaway at Fat Quarterly so I thought I'd cheer up our glowering thunderstormy skies with a little peek!
It’s a fab stack of Erin McMorris’ new Summersault line for Free Spirit in the ‘Lake’ colourway. I somehow missed out on Park Slope & Wildwood, so it’s really great to get my hands on these beauties. I’ve used Erin’s Irving Street Flannels before and they were wonderful to work with.
There’s a lovely interview with Erin here. I can’t find anywhere in the UK that stocks Summersault , but you can see it in loads more detail at The Fat Quarter Shop or Sew Mama Sew. If you know better, please let me know in a comment!
The colours are rich and bright without being too garish, the fabric is warm and soft and I can’t wait to get quilting with it. More precisely, this is going to be a quilt for my god-daughter’s birthday at the end of August .
I’ve got so many blocks I want to make at the moment, I can’t quite decide on a final pattern! I’m thinking wonky stars on white or a rectangle zig zag.
It needs to be simple or hypnotically repetitive to assemble, and sophisticated and striking to look at/touch. After my Harlot’s Web I need a break from scrappy & strippy for a while!
Any ideas? I’d really appreciate some suggestions … do leave a comment with a link to something you love right now or a description … or summat like that.
