The Sweetest Thing

May 2013 – we were driving around Northumberland wondering where we might like to live if we managed to sell our flat in Edinburgh, and we called in at a local quilting shop for some thread. Half an hour later, and after a chat with the lady in the shop about how lovely it would be to live in the village, I left with the thread. And this fat quarter bundle of Riley Blake’s ‘The Sweetest Thing’. Most expensive thread ever.

I just love the prints in the collection, especially the birds and the little flowers.


September 2015 – we now live in that lovely village hurrah. And that pretty fabric will be staying here too – as a quilt for the daughter of one of my new friends here.

I hope she loves it!
