Cath Kidson (whom I LOVE) but it isn't. No matter...it is my favorite cup.
I decided to make "Swoon" designed by Camille Roskelley from a fabric collection designed by Cyndi Walker called "Daydream" . I ordered fat quarter bundles and a pre-cut squares from
Hawthhorn Threads last spring. A perfect fit for this pattern I think.
I have been enjoying reading the postings on many blogs about the Farmer's Wife Quilt and since I bought the book last spring I feel I must jump on the bandwagon and make one for myself. I must admit to not being a fan of the template method, but I love the blocks so far. I decided to use my very large collection of Blackbird Designs fabrics.
I have been collecting for some time and was ready to leave the contemporary/modern fabrics which I love of course, and play with fabrics with a more historic feel to them. I admit to being a very multi-personality quilter.

Finally inspired, I played around with an idea and made this one:
|This fabric really makes me happy..used a fun fabric from my stash for the lining and strap|
