Sunday Stash

Posted on: March 30th, 2014 by Lorna McMahon

Last week, I was showing off my quilted jacket, made from Charley Harper prints in the Blue colour way.

More Charley Harpers.  This time, in the Fall colour way.
And some Kona Cotton Solids in Mushroom.

When I showed my mom the new jacket I made….  She fell in love!
She cooed and ooooed and gooed about it.

These new prints are destined become a jacket for my mom.  After all she has done for me… It is a pleasure to be able to make something for her that I just know she will just LOVE!

I told her about who Charley Harper was.  Borrowed from the local library, Charley Harper – An Illustrated Life by Todd Oldham, came along with me yesterday to visit.  I think she not only fell in love with these prints…  She also fell in love with Charley.

The October Edibles and Kona Cotton Solids in Mushroom were ordered from Fabric Spot.
The remaining Charley Harper prints were all from Mad About Patchwork.

Linking up to Sunday Stash with the fabulous Molli Sparkles.
