Yesterday was a great day out at Chilford Hall Quilt Show– lots of lovely stalls selling all sorts of quilty stuff – saw a great bag on the Monkey Buttons stall made with a couple of T-towels!!! And I just adore bags, so had to get the pattern, and bought some beautiful linen to make it with, then I bought a bundle of 6 fat-quarters of yummy “Eva” fabric from Kaleidoscope Fabrics. I’ve already got a jelly roll of this fabric, so maybe that will go towards making a bigger project. Couldn’t resist this gorgeous red and white fabric from the Sunflower Fabrics stall...
...and I just couldn't resist buying this pack of batik fabrics from Patchwork Creations, to make a quilt to go on the back of my sofa in the lounge (all my quilt friends know how much I adore batiks, so this was never going to be left sitting on the stall!!), a kit to make a cute shoulder purse along with some “spring fasteners” to make purses for Christmas presents from Euro Japan Links, and a couple of Charm packs from the Buttonberry stall – these came with a free book, but think I’ll use these to make another “Schnibbles” quilt.....more of those on another post!! And finally this cute little micro iron, which is great for appliqué, when you don’t need a huge iron to press all those fiddly little pieces into place. No wonder I was exhausted by the end of the day!!!
