Amy showcases her designs on her sweet blog, Nana Company. She has a very unique sewing style -pretty and feminine but also modern, and simply inspirational. So when I first heard she had a fabric line in the making I was so excited! I imagined it would be truly sensational, and boy was I right.
I love the pastel colours, the ethereal feel of the line, and the hand-drawn elements. Exquisite details and clever designs - it really doesn't look like someone's first fabric line, does it?! But then again, whatever Amy does she does so well, so it's no surprise that her fabric is no exception. My only complaint about the line is that I wish there were more prints, I simply couldn't get enough of it!
So... what did I make? When I received my fabric bundle I literally had to drop everything and run to my sewing room to make these star and heart ornaments as 'warm up'. Then I sat down and designed a sweet doll quilt.
Lots of sweet elements in this doll quilt - ruffles, English paper pieced diamonds, and a little heart patch as a finishing touch. For me doll quilts are all about the 'cute'! I designed it to fit Alice's IKEA doll bed and the colours work so well with her favourite doll 'baby' (made by the lovely Deb from Debs' Steiner Dolls). 'Baby' got a little pillow too. (Those curls? Can they be any cuter?!)
Last but not least, of course I will be giving away some lovely Paperie, courtesy of Amy! There is a giveaway running on my Instagram feed right now - go enter so you can win a fat eighth bundle for yourself and one more for a friend!
