I read lots of good reviews about this pattern and although I am an experienced sewer, I think this pattern is brilliant for it’s simplicity and ease of making and fitting. But the best thing about it, it is a great stash/remnant buster. It requires little fabric and if you have a look at this link, you will see so many variations and lovely versions of this pattern.
The fabric I have used has been in my stash for probably 20 years. I remember I bought it from Laura Ashley when they use to sell 3metre pieces all beautifully bundled up and placed in a lovely basket.
Laura Ashley cotton (very similar in quality to Liberty lawn)
Purchased navy bias binding
