I have just bought a quilt for my little girls room. I have admired it for a while. Its a simple design but I adore the subtle fabrics. I've even looked for similar fabrics with the idea of making one like it but its difficult to find good colour matches when buying online. Cost wise, I have to admit that I dont really tally up how much making a quilt costs me as I think I would be scared to know!
When I buy my fabrics, its normally over a period of time which is another reason I tend not to keep track of the cost. Considering how much I spend on the quilt top not to mention the backing fabric, buying this one new might work out around the same price...especially as I also had a 15% discount voucher... what do you think?
Here is the quilt in question. My daughters room has just been repainted. The colour is "hint of pashmina" which is a very very pale dusky pink. I think this quilt would be a great match for her room. We are also going to buy her a single bed in the new year.
The quilt looks much better in person, I just pulled these images from the White Company website.
Its so soft, and has the perfect loft and drape.It is delicately hand quilted with lots of space between each stitch. I've used all sorts of waddings in my quilts, cotton leaves a softer finish for sure, but this cotton wadding is both light in weight and gives great definition, perhaps if I keep it, it will be my quilt inspiration?!
Ordinarily, I probably wouldnt be so unsure about a purchase had I just not also bought my dream shoes!! I have always wanted a pair of glitzy red court shoes (think Ruby red slippers from the wizard of oz but for grown ups). Ok so these arnt red, but they are glitzy and they do have bows. I heart them!
While I'm in the buying mood (all this sunshine really has cheered me up) I spotted this lovely tea set which would be a great Christmas gift for my little girl. I couldnt get a large enough image so have included the clicky link.
I might just have to wait till payday to get her this though as my credit card is burning from all the use.
So whats on your wishlist this Christmas? My husband has asked me to make him a list although I think he may regret that once he sees it!
