Aga Top Pads & New Patchwork
When a friend talked about top pads for her new aga, I had to have a go! All these pieces of chicken fabric in my stash have been crying out for a kitcheny make! These are the first ones to go into the Folksy shop. I love this fabric in soft greens and creams with it's pretty chicken and egg design. I've used the insulbright wadding inside so they are good and heat resistent. And keeping to the recycled theme, the reverse is plain cream recycled cotton and the binding is hand made from recycled fabric.
My husband was moderately impressed with my last quilted fleece and commisioned one for his mother. I have to say I am impressed, he isn't normally known for inspirational gift ideas, but this is definitely one of his better ideas. So I chose some pretty soft greens and lilacs that I think (hope) Mum will love. I've also sourced a lovely soft lilac fleece for the reverse. I tried the colours in several different patterns, but finally settled on this one. Just need some border fabric now!
