What is there not to love about Liberty of London tana lawn? I'm a lucky girl and I have quite a stash, just perfect for little projects. Mum introduced me to Liberty fabrics when I was a little girl. I remember touching them for the first time and thinking they were silk. Mum still loves Liberty fabrics, so I thought they would be perfect for her birthday gift, a much needed Laptop Case.
I did contemplate sticking to a colour theme....maybe all pinks, Mum is a sucker for fuchsia, but then I through caution to the wind and went for a rainbow of colours.....
I chose the most stunning vintage button...Mum loves buttons!
I quilted the cover using diagonal lines, Mum had commented on how much she liked the quilting on Poppy's doll bag, so I thought I would give this the same treatment.
Inside is lined using a teal mini polka dot from my stash, which I think complemented the Liberty fabrics a treat.
Talking of treats, we've been baking mince pies, which it has to be said do not last very long in our house! Another batch is planned today for the big day itself. We've been watching family movies and generally relaxing. I've made a start on a quilt top for Poppy's bed, but more of that another day......
All that remains now is to thank you for visiting me here on the blog and to wish you all a very Merry Christmas, I hope that the next few days are full of all the things that make you happy!
