Quilt Shopping

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.
