Last night I finally cut into my much coveted Joel Dewberry Heirloom in Citrine. This is a range I had been lusting after for some time until a moment of weekness on a Saturday morning saw me trawling several online shops to gather all the pieces in the collection. I have had them stacked here in the lounge for just over a week now winking at me but I've not brought myself to actually make that first cut. So, last night I did. Okay I only cut 1 1/2" strips so that I could make my very own mug rug but the first cut is always the hardest, isn't it??!
Not very original - same pattern as the last mug rug but with less dense quilting. I will do another with denser quilting too - not sure which look I prefer yet.
What next? A cushion, perhaps? I want to use these fabrics to accent our lounge this year so am thinking cushions, pots, quilt & mug rugs.............maybe a runner for the sideboard too, or is that a fabric item too far???
