Fabric Friday - Finishing London 2012

12 comments
I've talked before about how I like Spoonflower.  Although I've yet to upload my own designs (sometime I will), I enjoy looking at the designs of other creative independent designers.  I found some really great prints that I ordered in fat quarters to mix in with my other London prints.  I'm going to work a bit on the border this weekend and I plan on using some of the prints below.
I like this sweet sketch like print that symbolizes themes from London, especially the teapots.
I have wanted to make a Buckingham guard block but have put it off.  I may just rely on these images of the guards instead.
This Spoonflower print is my favorite of the 3.  It joins the British teacup icon with the flags of countries in the Olympics.  It couldn't be more perfect for my quilt.
This is the reason I haven't had much time for sewing this week.  It is peach time.  I always want to take advantage of summer while it is in season.
A blurred picture of my fresh peach pie.  I used a recipe with peach nectar for the filling.  It was better than peach jello but not as pretty.  This pie is, of course, gone.  I need to make another for the weekend since we will have a house full.

Yes, that tea cup fabric would be perfect for your quilt especially since you have the Olympic rings block made.

Peaches look delish! I've been enjoying blackberries and blueberries.. going to go peach picking pretty soon. Can't wait to see your London quilt finished. It's going to be a stunner I'm sure. I love all of those fabrics. Esp. the first one with the tea pots. xo

First you tempt us with the beautiful fabric and then you show us the PIE! MY OH MY I WOULD LOVE THAT PIE!! Now tell me, what is peach nectar?!? Something you buy or make? And would you share the recipe? I have a couple of peach pie recipes but I'm still looking for "that one!" And yours looks like it just might be it! xo, Nan
