Two Fat Quarters

Last week I received two fat quarters 46cm x 56xm (18" x 22") from Higgs & Higgs one is a beautiful cotton print with Dragonflies & Wildflowers on a mauve background, the other is Rabbits & Hares with a grass green background with red flowers. I wanted to see what I could make from one fat quarter and so I decided to make a Thread catcher which shows the dragonflies of beautifully and a matching wrist pin cushion with a rolled rose center.  I then  used a strip to finish of a tea towel or guest towel and was left with two small squares which I piped in grey and made a lavender sachet and the very last piece just made another rolled rose which I plopped onto the sachet. I still have the Hares & Rabbits to do. Dream fabric to work with and very reasonably priced. Have a look at their web site, and  I would suggest you  make a cuppa before you start as you  might be some time in there. What do you think you would have made?

Goodness, you really made the most out of that quarter of fabric didn't you?! I would LOVE to learn how to sew and make things like this. I hope to one day learn though :)

I can envision that rabbit and green fabric becoming a beautiful little sundress!

It is amazing just what you can actually get out of one Fat Quarter. I looked on pinterest and was totally spoilt for choice. Grab yourself a machine and have a go, you might just surprise yourself Kayla. xxx
