2012 is upon us, and in the spirit of fresh starts, turning leaves, best feet forward and clean slates I've decided that my mantra for this year will be one word. SIMPLICITY. How long will it last? Well, that depends on how cynical you are (and how well you know me). I'm being optimistic and aiming for at least February. And what could be simpler than just three colours? When I first saw the samples of the new Bridgeport range from Andover Fabrics I confess my first thought was "Meh". Red, black and brown? I don't think so. For shame! After playing around with it for a while it's now one of my favourite things. The perfect thing for a gentleman's quilt (and lets be honest, when it comes to quilts, the gents are often sadly neglected). So, grab some Bridgeport, keep your life simple and make a discerning chappie happy.
