Better than a box of chocolates. . .




Well, almost. And, of course, it would depend on the chocolates. But for right now, this package is enough for me!

I have always loved Liberty of London fabrics. Always. You can read a bit about them here.
I frequently browse Etsy when I am awake earlier than "o-dark early" and have been know to do a little retail therapy. The Liberty Tana Lawn is not readily available in the states but I found a site on Etsy that had a collection of 40 pieces which was more than plenty for the project that I had in mind! Alice Caroline's Etsy Shop can be found here. My package arrived from the UK by Royal Mail.



There was lots of candy fabric in that envelope. It is hard to choose a flavor color.




So what I shall do is use a little bit of each one.



Yes, I am going to make a quilt for my Miss Maggie Rabbit - on my Featherweight sewing machine.



Earlier this summer, Claudia from Mockingbird Hill Cottage shared her Miss Maggie. I ordered the kit from Alicia Paulson at Rosy Little Things. I love a complete kit made up of quality components.


I need to finish Maggie who will be known as Mabel when we get back to Florida and we are settled. But her wardrobe is done and she will be done when her stuffing is stuffed.



So, I shall start this little quilt soon.


Thanks for stopping by.

These are all such pretty fabrics, Carol. They remind me of the shirts and dresses I wore in the 60's.
