A Day Out

Last Thursday Karen and I went for a drive to Penrith to collect her sewing machine.  Karen was kind enough to then drive us to Drummoyne so we could visit Material Obsession - an absolute feast for the eyes.  I was VERY restrained in my purchases.


Some large florals to store with my "Candied Hexagons" stash - I think one or two of those birds will look wonderful in the quilt as well as the large flowers.  And, when I saw the Dio de los Muertos fabric, I had to buy a metre of that to make something for Peta or I can give it to Jenni if she would like to make something.

So much to see in the shop and so much I could buy.

I spent a good part of yesterday in the sewing room and Hunky Dory Spin is together.

Hunky Dory Spin ~ 96" x 84"

I haven't made a quilt this large before.  It will be interesting to see how I go quilting this one on the frame.

I love your Spin City quilt Lynda - it is huge. Your fabrics from Material Obsession are very bright. I see some Tradewinds fabric in the bottom corner. I have some of this in Charm Squares in my shop - I am not usually a really bright loving girl but I do like the Tradewinds range. xxx

Sounds like you had a great time - fabrics will be great in your hexagons too! Quilt looks wonderful -I'm sure you and your frame will find a way :)
