Vibrant 70s Kitchen Fabric Cushions by Jane Foster

Am adding some wonderful bold, vibrant, happy 70s kitchen fabric cushions to my website and etsy. The one with the white background was from some unused fabric I've recently bought. You might remember I used some wallpaper like it to cover my cupboard.

Love For Swedish Hasbeens

I dream of owning a pair of original Swedish Hasbeens. Here are some of my favourites  -  I would love to walk to the post office in these boots! (and have the legs to match!)

Exciting New Mid Century Modern Fabric Quilt!

Have decided to start on a large and exciting project - to make a wonderful large quilt using all my favourite and precious rare pieces of mid century modern fabrics that I've collected over the past ten years. (some 60s and 70s are slipping in too!)
Many are original 50s Lucienne Day, Marian Mahler and Jaqueline Groag fabrics. (none are reproductions)
Although they look a bit of a clash together, I feel it's something I want to do so I can enjoy them all instead of them being in a suitcase! Here are some photos of the initial stages - laying them out to see what could work together. Next stage is washing them all by hand, ironing them and cutting them into exact squares. I shall keep you posted on my progress - it might take a while as I've got my fingers in lots of pies!
