The spare room has somewhat of a travel theme in our house. I want people who come stay to lay back and look up at pictures of lovely lagoons and flick through the travel guides on the shelf and dream up some adventures. I had some gorgeous material looking for a use that I picked up in Zambia, the usual bucket of offcuts and a burning desire to embroider and...voila! The travel quilt is born.
Ok, so it's unlikely to win any awards at the Great British Sewing Bee (How much are you loving that by the way, I'm thoroughly inspired!) but it really makes me smile and I loved making it. I embroidered on some designs I knocked up during one of my many sofa stints of travel quotes and capital cities.
How amazing is that! If you're not a second hand shopper then really, what are you waiting for? Craft and charity shop on my friends!
