Fabric Guild


Bluebell and myself went to our fabric guild this morning to have a final root around , of course we came away with fantastic bargains . Initially bluebell went for 505 spray , I went for gingham fabric . Goodness knows what bluebell came away with but oooooh !! it will be bread and jam again .
These folowing pictures are my purchases . This is called a quilters mix £1.25, I have already cut this into strips and added it to a cheater lone star panel which I hope to add the batting and backing to tomorrow

This is 4 cushion panels, I shall cut the centres out and use them in a floral quilt, the pieces in between I have other plans for . The whole piece was £1,25


Again, ths is a set of 4 cushion panels , I shall add borders and make it into a lap quilt, the whole piece £1.25



These are christmas cushion panels . I bought 2 sets of 4 panels , I shall seperate them , make a patchwork house block to use as a centre block to turn the whole thing into a 9 patch christmas bed quilt , The 8 cushion panels were £2.50. I,m so pleased with my purchases




The turquoise, purpley in the bottom left corner is another 4 cushion panel , I shall cut that too ,I can use it in a Kaffe Fasset quilt . his style of quilts have beautiful bright colours . Some of my friends shudder at such vivid hues but not me.
The bottom right hand corner is floral fabric, 60 " wide, 3 yds £2 . I had 6 yds. It is Marti Michell fabric . down the side it says 1992 but it is in perfect condition. Perfect for backing . So another well spent day in any respect . Once again we have both vowed we are not going near a fabric place again for a longtime .

Miss Solomi, Blogger is still misbehaving! It isn't anything you've done. I've even cleared my "cache" as they recommend, but it still will not load my pictures. *sigh* Computer technology certainly tries our patience, doesn't it!

At least if we pick up our stitching we have control over it! ;-)

I went to our scrap store and got , for free, a pile of material and our technology teacher at school will make me a template and now I need a cutting mat and a cutting wheel and have a few things for sale on ebay. When I've sold them, then I'll get going on the material cutting and have my first attempt at quilting
