New Ikea Duvet Cover

DH picked out this fresh, spring floral duvet cover which came with matching pillow cases, we selected two more in navy blue. While we were there, I grabbed two feather accent cushions with the intension of making covers for them. When we got home, I went through my stash looking for fabric to match, here’s what I came up with (click on photos for larger view):

I think all these fabrics go well with the Ikea print but for me, the two fabrics that really stand out in the crowd are #1 and #2 although the blue floral print, #3, really echos the blue flowers in the print. Now I have to find a pattern or make something up. 😀

In just 27 days we’ll be on a flight to Germany. We’ll be spending a week in Bremen with my Mother-in-Law then flying to Munich and driving into the alps to Austria and perhaps Switzerland. While there, I’ll be blogging with my iPad and bringing you along. This vacation can’t come soon enough!

Happy Saturday!!

Keeping up with the Joneses

I can’t, I just don’t have that much spare time and am away from home 11 hours a day. I’m dropping out of SewCalGal’s Free Motion Quilting Challenge, I missed February completely and March is more than half over with nothing to show for it. I will follow the tutorials when I can but I just can’t compete, especially when we’re having such beautiful weather.

I also won’t be participating in any more creative swaps — fabric swaps are easier and I’m considering the Charm About You’s Stale Stash Swap, I have some Joel Dewberry which needs rehoming.

Here’s the little mug rug I broke a needle on last weekend, I have one Microtex needle left, good thing Fabricland is having a birthday sale soon, I’ll be stocking up on thread as well.

I received my purchase of Flea Market Fancy Eyelet in grey, two yards as it’s an excellent basic, my first purchase of this line, I missed the first round.

BTW, this is my first post composed entirely on my new iPad (yeah, the new one that just came out) using Blogsy(I love it!), you can use it for Worpress or Blogger, comes with instructional videos built in so if you need help, it’s right there but everything is intuitive imo. I even took these photos with my new iPad!

This is going to be awesome for our trip to Germany in May!
