One of my most favourite places to go is the quilt shop in Scarborough and with the first Hutton Buscel "Quilts for All" workshop of 2009 coming up next Saturday, I must have more fabric.........
Circles and Triangles is the name of the next quilt and this is what it looks like now. It's been washed, and awaiting pressing. I hope it won't be too long before I'm posting a photo of the finished item. All from Freedom Fabrics Fired Earth range.
All the fabrics at Scarborough are £4.30 per metre, but for the next 3-4 weeks there is a 10% sale off everything. Quilting fabric for £3.87 a metre!!!
Well it would have been rude not to buy more in honour of the sale, so I picked up another 2 metres of immensely wide "Warm and White" batting and a 50 foot roll of freezer paper.
I was also treated to this great craft tote bag by my wonderful husband. Half price with a further 10% off made it just under £13.50. It has 4 large and 2 medium plastic trays inside and lots of zipped and velcroed pockets and pouches around the outside. It's going to be fantastic for my workshops as everything I need, bar long rulers and the sewing machine, will fit into it.
And here's Benji who has been sitting so patiently whilst I've sewed and blogged. It's time he had a cuddle. Click on his name to visit his blog.
