my first sew-along

Here are my fabric choices for the 

My first choice is the vintage flower fabric
only purchased recently, and I love it like crazy!
Either side I'm going for a turquoise gingham and Amy Butler sunspot.
These will be teamed with a natural cotton,
instead of linen, as I'm not great with that!
I think the smaller floral fabric will be the backing,
not yet decided on the binding :o)

This is the inspiration.
Its taken from I love patchwork 
a book by Rashida from I heart linen
Who is playing along also!

Why not pop over and join in?
Runners must be finished by
April 19th
There is a prize!!

You do have a great way with the colour turqoise. I love the way you use it. xxxx

Love that vintage fabric you've chosen - very seventies. I'll not join in this time - if you don't mind. I'm much better being an on-looker/awestruck admirer when it comes to sewing!
