Local Craft Fair
I've scanned these 40 pieces of fabric I bought today at my local craft fair that happens every June long weekend. I thought this would be the best way to show off my fabrics, that are so far out of my usual purchases.
Have you ever had a quilt in your head that you know how you want it to look? I have and this fabric will be used in this quilt.
I so hope I can explain what I mean and don't end up confusing not only myself but you as well.
Since 2008 when I first started quilting, back then I only made small items. I tended towards the autumn colours and country colours. That is still my passion along with reproduction fabrics from the Civil War era.
But also I have had this heart melting feeling when I see those soft fabrics, turned into a quilt. There is something about looking at a quilt made with pastel colours.
As I plod along with this quilt and that quilt (don't we all) I am going to make a quilt, using the pastel/light colours.
ThefabricsI bought yesterday will be added to the stash for this quilt, all but the one on the right. This 1/4 metre is a bit too bright for what I want my quilt to look like.
I also have some open charm packs I have used for different projects and these will also be added to the quilt as I go.
I love organic gardening, crafts and writing about my pig's adventures. Also I have a HUGGLES For Kids as an ongoing appeal. All kids love to HUGGLE a softie. If you want to make some and send them to me....email me.
