Vanessa Abuthnott

What is it about fabric. Quilting or furnishing I just can't help myself when I see any type of it.
Last weekend Vanessa Abuthnott had her lovely fabric sale and I adore her fabrics. She only buys certified organic cotton which is combined with eco-friendly flax to create her unique linen union.

I'm still working at making my house a home and have used her fabric in my sitting room for curtains and cushions.

I bought some lovely remnants from her last weekend and in due course be making more cushions and soft furnishing for the house.

It's a year this weekend that I moved here and you would think by now I would be nearly there but some areas I'm not completely happy with and have now changed my mind on my bedroom.
I found myself buying some of Vanessa new Swedish range to make blinds, headboard and fabric to cover a stool and chair.
Am I glad I hadn't started a new quilt for my bed as the colours have now changed.

Once again this isn't a quilty post but I know how you all love fabric.

So this is what I have chosen for my bedroom and as Shirley at said a girls allowed to change her mind.


  1. I love Vanessa Arbuthnott fabrics, they are such soft colours and I am sure you have made a good choice. I am liking the soft grey/green combo in one of the pics. A girl is allowed to change her mind.

  2. A girl is definitely allowed to change her mind! Your fabric choices are yummy. Look forward to seeing the end result.
