Sunday Stash #50


Happy Mother's Day! 

Orla Kiely Queen Size duvet cover - now available at Myer

As you can see I have been incredibly spoiled.  Again!  I love all of Orla's designs, although this is my favorite.  Even the box is much coveted.


This is very large scale print called Multi-Stem.  Believe it or not, this cover is going to make at least two unique quilt backings.  I have my rotary cutter poised to cut, without hesitation.

Enjoy Sunday - enjoy Mother's Day.

  14. EEeeeek! Beautiful! Have you got tips for quilting through high thread counts? I'm currently trying to quilt through a sheet backing given to me by a neighbour (on a domestic machine) and I'm having a heck of time with shredding thread (Mettler quilting weight). A topstich 100/14 needle seems to be the best, but I'm not super thrilled with the results.

  23. I am SO in favor of cutting up bed linens to make quilt backs. I found some great vintage sheets at a thrift store that are destined to become the back of one or more quilts. I even saw a sheet recently in a local discount store that would make a great backing and binding. I may have to go back and buy it.

  26. Hi Rita, I saw this fabric on Spoonflower - isn't it very similar to the Orla Kiely?
