my creative space - bespoke bunting

Despite bouts of gastro with the kids this week, I gratefully managed to finish a custom order for the lovely Rita from Gone Rustic.  She is one talented lady, she makes amazing art quilts, and crochets like a rocket, so I felt quite humbled when she asked lil ol' me. 

This bunting features fabric of her own design called 'secrets' ~ it's quite an intricate design, (do click on the photo to see the detail), but she only had four small different coloured pieces to give me, which were a bit less than the size of a fat quarter.
After a bit of measuring and cutting, (tenaciously I might add!) in the end I managed to get 4 bunting flags from each piece, and this is the effect....

I think her beautiful fabric really sings, don't you?

There are 8 flags in each one.
I love doing custom orders, it's great to see the effect of a fabric or size, that I don't normally do.

Head over to Kirsty's for some creative spaces that may surprise you.
Hope you are having a great week.
