I have just received this from Just Fabrics:

https://www.justfabrics.co.uk/curtain-fabric-upholstery/chartreuse-longleat-fabric/

I am going to make roman blinds for the side windows in OH's summerhouse which he is plodding on with. I am nowhere near being ready to make them but bought it on impulse when I saw it - and it was in their sale. Very pleased with it - it has a strong design without having too much colour in it.

 I like that... I saw some very similar wallpaper in someone’s house...it looked fabulous.

Oooh that's lovely @Greybird. I think @BrendaP used something similar in a quilt a while back.  :thinking:

Not quite the same but very similar.  What I used for the back of a qult was definitely not upholstery weight, it's on the lighter end of regular craft/patchwork cotton.

GD obviously prefers the back to the pieced front; I've seen two photos of Myah lying on the back of it.  She's about 6 weeks old in this photo.

The fabric's lovely but it's outshone by the grand-daughter!
