Stash for Dear Jane

Yesterday mom and dad paid us a visit and mom showed me some of the stitching she really likes.  She is someone that stitches more on smaller and medium sized thingies than the BAP so I already heard her coming .... "can't you make me this and that ...?" Here's what she likes most:

Lanarte - Asian Beauty

Let's say that I'll consider it mom (all that on black ... go figure). Not even talking about the ones I like ...

Lanarte - Asian Beauty and Oriental Sunset

Lanarte - Geisha (in my stash)

Before my parents came over, I also did spend some time in my favourite quilt shop in Antwerp to find the perfect sashing fabric for my Dear Jane quilt (and also find me some other colours for the blocks :-). Here's what I came up with:

Makower "Small Leaves" used as background fabric for my blocks

Makower "Scrolls" for the sashings

Both fabrics have the same hues (which you wouldn't say looking at the pictures) and are from the same series. As you can see I didn't chose something extremely different but I wanted it to be more subtle.

Can't wait to start putting the 16 blocks that I already have together!

Have a nice weekend!

Nice fabrics! You will be very brave if you stitch that picture which your mum likes... :-)
