But putting the pieces together was a big old pain. As was the binding. Hubby looked bemused when I tried to explain that a simple curved box shape was much trickier than a quilt. I think he is unconvinced.
But it's all done now. I still love the fabric despite the sewing agony, which is by Zesti over at Spoonflower. She has gorgeous designs, including some great fairy tale inspired lines which I think are dying to be made into children's quilts. I finished the cover off with some left over binding from Sweetie Pie. I thought the little pattern was a bit like a Japanese character, and the black tied in. Everything else I looked at seemed far too busy. And black on a kitchen bench has a certain practical appeal.
However I think Barbarella will remain naked for a while as I am not inspired to launch into her cover. She can just stay on the bench revelling in her raspberry ice glamour. Tackling Henry Fish: The Quilt would be more satisfying. On that note, I wrapped up Henry Fish's pillowcase and sent it off for Mother's Day yesterday. It was sad to say bye!
