I really thought I'd just combine fabrics, mainly greens & pinks, and things would be great!!
Well, you know... there's many many different greens and many many pinks! It was suddenly beginning to look very shabby chic, not at all what I wanted!!!
I needed to go back to my starting point.
What I had in mind was a summer garden party....leafly greens/pinks/soft blues, with just a touch of something deeper...that's what I wanted! So to help, this afternoon I put together a few ideas - my collection of oriental pretties sitting alongside assorted blue & white china, mum's 80th "high tea" setting in her garden, my daughter's wedding bouquet, my mis- matched cups & saucers, and of course the quilt that started all this!!!
A kind of mood board, I guess?
And then I got busy sewing......
p.s. Here's a photo update......
