A Better Match
Timber & Leaf is the name of this adorable line of fabric, designed by Sarah Watts. Sarah Watts is an illustrator originally and you really must check out her other fabulous work here. The delicate designs, which show her talent as artist, and subtle use of colour are quite different from any other line of fabric I know.
I stumbled upon these fabrics because Luna wasn't crazy about this scrappy quilt I was making for her bed (see photo above). To be fair, Timber & Leaf is a much better match with Luna's introvert character than the scrappy quilt is.
Luna had requested a 'Plus' quilt for her bed but I managed to convince her that a Chevron pattern would be pretty neat too. I'm still in the process of making Half Square Triangles (this tutorial on P.S. I Quilt describes how I make mine) and even though I mix in suitable fabrics from my stash a little more Timber & Leaf would be nice to complete the quilt. Good thing I didn't make any New Year's resolutions about buying fabric. ;)
p.s. I bought my FQ bundle of Timber & Leaf here.
