A Decision


Hi Everyone, I am Fee from Designs By Fee (www.designsbyfee.com)  I am starting university on Monday as a mature age student to study nursing and want a few major sewing projects to sew in my down time to keep me sane so hence the reason I have decided to make this quilt along with you all.
 
Last year I pre-ordered a range of fabrics designed by Sue Daley called Raspberry Parlour.  Once they arrived I stashed them onto my "Special" shelf where I thought they would sit for a very long time until a project came along that was worthy of them.

As soon as I made the decision to join in the Stitch A Long for 2015 and saw Anni's gorgeous design I knew that this special bundle of fabric was perfect for it.

I have ordered the pattern and can't wait to start.

Thanks for letting me join in the fun Chooky & Susan.

Hugs - Fee x

Fee this is range I using as well.
Not quite sure what other fabrics I am putting with it but I am sure inspiration will hit.
Look forward to seeing how your quilt comes together.
