I'm really not sure if this should feel like an accomplishment, but it does. I am now the proud owner of at least 1/4 yard of every print of Lizzy House's Red Letter Day - 18 glorious and gorgeous pieces of fabric. The colours, the images, the whimsy - I love everything about this fabric:
In the photo below, the colourways are Pond, Galosh and Feather, from left to right. Even those names are cute! I think my favourite prints are Walk in the Woods in Pond (green and blue trees on white), Ducks in a Row in Feather (small pink ducks on brown background) and Ugly Duckling in Pond (larger ducks on green). But I also love those amazing stripes, especially in Pond:
I bought all but three prints from various online shops based in the US. Then, the lovely Jenny from Cut.Sew.Iron.Repeat and I did a fabric swap and she kindly included some Stripes in Pond and in Galosh. Finally, I rang a quilt shop about an hour away and they had a few metres left of Ugly Duckling in Feather. I controlled myself and only bought 1/2 metre (prices are sooooo high for fabric here in Australia!). And that completed the collection.
I'm glad my son agrees with me that this fabric is special:
What will this fabric become? Definitely a quilt or two. A summer dress for my baby girl. Maybe a bag for myself. I can't wait to get started!
