We visited a couple of patchwork shops and I stocked up on backings and a background fabric for some quilts I have planned. Some other fabric arrived in the post that day too and there was some shopping from Karen's cupboard.
"Summertime" designed by Susan Ache in FigTree's "Coney Island" fabric - I've had this jelly roll for a long time. Love the colours.
"Star Drops" designed by The Pattern Basket - very scrappy FigTree fabrics with a pretty star fabric for the background.
Another "Nine Patch Waltz" in FigTree's "Mill House Inn" fabric will be started soon - not cut out just yet. A couple of friends will be making this one too.
My FigTree crate is about half full, so the stash is diminishing.
On Saturday, Mum, Michael, Gulli and I visited Rozelle Markets - Jenni and Kurt had a stall there selling handmade earrings and woollen weavings. Jenni's been very busy over the last few months. A beautiful, sunny winter's day to be outside.
Yesterday was a day at home cooking and sewing plus a visit from Elizabeth, Matt and ChaCha. I added borders to the Handmade Irish Chain quilt. Was a bit disappointed that the design isn't printed exactly on the straight grain of the fabric but it all worked out ok.
The backing is sewn together - it's a pretty cross-stitch design from the Handmade range.
Will be working on Scrappy Crossroads this week - I have a couple more blocks sewn together
and stitching down bindings on the blue cot quilt and house/Irish chain quilt.
This cutie is 36 today!
