Truly Scrumptious

My friend Sarah and I have started making "Truly Scrumptious", the gorgeous new quilt from Natalie Lymer of Cinderberry Stitches.

I tried to be very good and use fabrics from my cupboard and have managed this pretty well - the only fabrics I've bought are the stripe for the binding, the floral for the outer border (these were both remnant pieces) and the rosebud stripe for one block inner border and the sashings (this was a great special from a local shop).

Because of the fabrics chosen I've changed a couple of the DMC colours from the colours used in the pattern (347 to 600 and 57 to 4210).

There is a bonus block design to use as a label and as this girl's name is Elizabeth (written Elisabeth) I want to make her the centre block of the quilt. So Miss Izzy in the photo will be the label.

The Girls are great fun to stitch.

Hi Lynda! Your blog is just fantastic! I look forward to reading it on a regular basis! Love the fabrics you're using for your Truly Scrumptious blocks...wish I could have resisted buying more fabric for mine, as well!! Oh, well! What's a bit more in the cupboard, right?! Cheers, Mary Ann

Hi I came across your site while searching for information on Truly Scrumptious. I would love to make the quilt using my own fabrics but I can only find for sale as B.O.M. can you tell me if I am able to purchase pattern only?

Lynda said...

Hi Justine

Sorry I could reply directly to you. I bought mine as pattern only from http://www.moorepatchwork.com/index.php?act=viewProd&productId=304.

regards
Lynda
