Ready to Start!

I have selected my fabrics, now to decide on size, whether it is to be a tablecloth or a bed quilt! I hope I haven't confused you with my Sneak-Peek - it is a nice little table topper!

Here they are! Once again I'm showing you the feature fabric I have selected - one of Philip Jacobs, complimented by several others of his and of course, also Kaffes. The yellow is a ring-in, I think it kind of talks along with the others and has something to say!


Perhaps a metre left on the bolt - another Philip Jacobs, below and isn't it just so gorgeous - fate unknown!

Would you combine these two fabrics? I love the top one and want to make a small bag as a RAK - I think the Kaffe just lifts it and makes it quite unique!
Oh, I hope it is a lovely stitchy weekend for me, lots of little finishes and hopefully a start on my new project. Enjoy your weekend!
