Excellent Day Out

Today I went on a road trip to a few quilt shops in Sydney with some friends - we had a great day and I've added a fair bit to the stash (along with a fair bit of on-line shopping over the last two weeks).

Bought some fabrics (cotton and flannel) to use for baby quilt backs and more baby fabrics to add to my stash.

Also bought some goregous lime green/white fabric just because I like it, matryoshka fabric to make Jenni a bag (maybe), pink/red fabric because I like it and a few other bits and pieces for an upcoming swap.

We visited Jules Craft Shop (Loftus), Logan's Patchwork (Leichhardt), Quiltsmith (Annandale), Remnant Warehouse (Alexandria) and also Gordon Smith (clothes shop).

I've made my first block for Sylvia's Bridal Sampler - Ladies' Aid Album, position F-8 in the quilt.  These Oh Cherry Oh fabrics are lovely and fresh.  Diann's block is here.  Our quilts couldn't be more different.

Finally stitching down the binding on Tail Feathers then it will be finished and ready for one of my brother's new grandbabies due later this year (if one is a girl).  I've been really enjoying the straight machine sewing/piecing; nice change from all the stitching.

Oh beautiful eye candy Lynda. I love all of it and I see you got some ric rac too.

Your cherry quilt is looking good.

Can't wait to see your TF's finished. It is nice to do some easy sewing sometimes.
