Not long ago a parcel of fabric arrived at my house courtesy of Australian textile designer Saffron Craig. Saffron's fabrics are fresh and contemporary and from experience I can reassure you the quality is excellent.
Saffron's newest range of fabrics is called Fantastic Fairies and features fairies, flowers, butterflies and hearts in pink, red and brown with just a touch of green.
This quilt top has since been on my design floor. Fairies, hearts and butterflies were fussy cut. More fabrics were pulled from stash. Green fabrics were added as a contrast as well as lots of interesting detail fabrics featuring ladybirds, flowers, mushrooms and kerchief girls to add to a dreamy wonderland theme.
A lot of re-arranging took place before I was happy with the final layout, and piecing commenced not long after. The pieces are all quite small, the regular blocks measuring 3 inches including the seam allowances.
