I won, I won!

Lilys Quilts

I won Lily's Quilts' competition to make a Jubilee project on a budget!!!! Now I get to choose £20 of fabrics from Abakhan Fabrics and make up my idea, and Lynne will put a tutorial on her blog so others can make it too!

My idea is to make a Jubilee-themed picnic rug that can fold up and be used as a bag too. Ideally I want the bag to be functional too, so you can carry stuff in it, rather than it just being a folded up rug with straps to carry it, but I'm not sure how possible that will be - I don't have much experience of designing stuff from scratch. So I'm going to go and have a pootle around t'interwebs and try and get some inspiration...

  4. I saw on my phone, how fantastic and a great idea, Ive seen something similar in blog land for kids play mats, perhaps do a google search on that. My MIL lived near Abakhan but it was before I got into fabric :(

  5. Congratulations! As Pippa said, there are oodles of patterns out there. YOU just have to find the right one. I think I've got one in one of my books. I'll find it and if it's any good I'll scan it in and send it to you.
