Engagement quilt.

I received all these fabrics in the post yesterday. I wish every day was like that.

They are from my brother and soon to be, future SIL.

They have chosen these fabrics for me to make the quilt below as their engagement present. I've rinsed and pressed all the fabrics today and hope to make a start tonight, I'm desperate to start some hand stitching.

Thankyou to everyone for their suggestions on my pin cushion problem below, working on that too.


  1. Can't wait to see the progress shots and then the finished product..... we are really excited.

  2. As a quilting beginner (basic lines for me at this point thanks!) all I can say is Wow! What a lovely rainbow and what a tricky looking quilt.

  3. Great fabrics and you'll do a fantastic job , can't wait to see it !

  4. I love rail fence quilts because they look intricate, yet are easy to put together. The colors are great and the applique flowers and birds are going to be so pretty.
    I bet your brother and sil are going to absolutely love the finished quilt!!

  5. Gorgeous fabric, those colours should look fabulous in that quilt.

  6. Oh my what a project! What a great pattern! They picked out lovely fabrics for it! Have fun! 8-)
