Emily's Black & White Quilt

Been shopping today in Tunbridge Wells to buy fabric for my granddaughter's quilt.  Emily would like black and white with lavender. I bought all I wanted at Sewing World - they have loads of fabrics to choose from including dress cottons.  I had a little lavender sample I stapled onto a piece of card and began to choose.......and this is what I bought.

Lovely shades of Lavender

....and some extra black and white for borders and binding

Emily had spotted that I had some 10" black and white squares I had in my stash which I had received from the Popular Patchwork Black & White Swap and fell in love with it..............and this is what it looks like

I love the dress shapes

Can't wait to start it now, but I have to wash all the fabrics I bought today, so maybe I'll start next week.

Bye for now


  1. That is going to look so good Irene.I love the fabrics!

  2. Well Irene, I think your patchwork will be great, can't wait to see it finished.
    I also loved the photos from your holidays in Italy, it's on my to do list for later.

  3. Those lavender shades are gorgeous Irene. I do miss going to that shop!

  4. Hoping to make a start this week with cutting out...but I have other birthday blocks, friendship blocks and postcards to get making this week!

  5. lavender is not my colour (would be terrible if we all liked the same colour) but that black and white looks great.
    Looking forward to see what you come up with
