The ottoman empire

Well ..... a patchwork ottoman empire!


Inspired by this stunning piece, I made this ...


Using fabrics purchased at Stitches and Craft a couple of weeks ago.


All Aussie fabric designers.
Namely:

I'm a proud Aussie today surrounded by all this local design talent.

Huge fan of all those fabric designers - great job.

Fabo Mrs. Now we know why you were trawling around suitcases of Stitches shopping. How long did that one take to whip up? During an episode of Masterchef?!?!?

just delightful, love the colours and the fabrics, they really do go nicely together.

Danielle said...

wow ! it's wonderful Andi! I'd be very very proud of that

Claire - Matching Pegs said...

Gasp!

Just wonderful.

Now I am wishing I had an ottoman to cover - I'm thinking the same effect would be hard to achieve on a bean bag ;-).

I just love all our "native" fabric, and it harmonies so well. It reminds me I have a few pieces from I&S somewhere, waiting to be used.

Leonie Guld said...

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!!!

angela said...

you took that awesome aussie fabric and made it even more amazing! That ottoman is to die for.

Amitie Girl said...

Quilary said...

Stunning combination of fabrics. A really gorgeous piece of furniture!

Bronwyn said...

eek - I wouldn't let a bottom near it, let along feet or a cuppa (shudder!)

My new favourite machine quilter is Bev from Be My Ballantyne in Camberwell. She did my quilt basting.

You are ace Andi. Ace because this is the most awesome ottoman I've ever seen, and also Ace, because you've just inspired me to do up my ottomans the same way. Expect a post from me about this in a year or so... (but the idea's in my head at least :)!
