Quilt Show

I really enjoyed myself yesterday at the Quilt Show - some of those quilts are so very beautiful but the real reason I went was to buy fabric. It was the equivalent of a child in a sweetie shop!!

I got the only set of fat quarters in the new range of Antique Flower Collection from the US. Can't wait to start sewing! And then I went mad on another stall and bought loads, some of these fabrics had rows of cloth already stitched on  - just as well I'd taken my buggy as I'd never have been able to carry it all.

I bought only one book, it's The Found Object in Textile Art by Cas Holmes - chock full of inspiring artwork and many projects using things that cost very little. I read it cover to cover last night.


  1. What beautiful fabrics.
    I love to make quilts, but my style is to create small art quilts out of recycled bits and pieces and small pieces of silk and muslin which I dye in a pan on top of my cooker.
    I am a beginner, but was lucky to have been given huge bags of fabric which I have not started on yet.

    I look forward to seeing what you make with this gorgeous material.
    Have a lovely evening.

  2. I've been hoarding fabrics for years! But I still buy more at the slightest excuse hehe!

    You are lucky to have been given lots of fabrics to play with.

    I tried to see your blog but it didn't load, but will try again! Nice to see you're in the UK.
