|YUWA Live Life Fabric Collection
"Bet you can't do it in reproduction fabrics", was all I needed to hear and I was up for the challenge. My fellow stitchers had beautiful quilts in batiks, but I stuck with reproduction prints.
I love the detail in this one.
It set the color scheme for the rest of my fabric selections.

This is the finished quilt - well not really.
BUSTED - I packed it away without hand sewing the binding down! First time I've done that. Imagine my surprise thinking I'd finished it!?!
The book is HERE.
If you decide to make it be sure to review the 'corrections' section of the website.
Mine is larger than the cover quilt - I added the Yuwa print as the final border.
It is all machine done, except for the applique center.
It too has matching pillow cases.
What is that wood thing??
Can you help me? It was a gift from Northern Wisconsin and is said to be a storage box for sewing.
I can't quite see how that would work?
The top swings open on a metal post/rivet. There are 6 carver compartments. It appears to have been made from a single piece of wood.
Once closed a metal 'U' bracket swings up to hold it in place.
It is very clean inside so this particular piece was used for oily parts or nails etc.
Ever see one before?
Check out Lynne's post HERE you'll see another version of the little red toile quilt quilt!
Seems Cyndi at Busy Thimble had a kit and Nancy gifted the kit to Lynne. How wonderful!
Makes me smile ;-)
Stay safe and have a great week!
