Monday Makers!#48 reporting from London!

Hiya all!
After spending a week in Berlin and four days in Thuringen, we are now in London, the last step of our holiday, visiting my husband's niece who is going to give birth very soon. We are here for five days and then it is home time. I miss my home.
Unfortunately, I missed last week's Monday Makers. It was our last day in Berlin and we were so busy with finishing sightseeing and preparing for the next day's trip to Thuringen. I missed the MM but I managed to catch up with Aylin of aylin-nilya who used to hold a linky party called Monday Makers too. She is a lovely lovely person (and a very talented quilter and pattern maker/writer) and we had a very nice lunch together. If you are following me on IG, hugabitquilts, you might have already seen our selfie there :)
Today, we left home early to do some fabric shopping and sightseeing as well-just got home. After visiting a few places for fabric-can't remember the name of the street and suburb; none of the shops were selling quilting fabric anyway- we ended up going to Liberty of London. I admired the fabric there; only admired tho, it was jaw droppingly expensive. However, I couldn't resist a fat quarter bundle which was 20 Pounds and a book on bag making whose details I will provide later (it is close to midnight now and I have to go to bed to wake up veeery early tomorrow morning).

Now to Monday Makers!
You might remember that I took some fabric and one inch hexagons with me to do some EPP in the plane. Well, that worked out very well and I made seven EPP flowers.
This one was stitched together too.
I really like how they are coming together. Once I go home, I will share some helpful details/tips about how to stitch the hexies together.
Do you have any projects to share with me? The link is below. The link will be open until Thursday night since the Monday is almost over.

  1. Library make the most beautiful fabric. I am very slowly making an EPP Liberty quilt (it has to be slow because of the cost of the fabric). Enjoy London, it is my favourite place in the world. x

  2. Liberty is great , but a bit late for you now , but there is a shop on the old Brompton road called shaukat which sells Liberty and small remnants very cheaply
