Sew much fun I thought I would make one in scrappy colours and another in red/pink.Marvelous mini Monday pattern from Temecula Quilt Co came out. And it was way more difficult then a four patch! We will see if I manage to keep up or not ;)
While I am confessing my "sins" this is another new project. A table runner designed by Jacquelynne Steves for Spring from the Top your Table series running in Quilts and More magazine. I normally avoid iron on applique, but for a table runner I figure I will get sick of after a few years, why not?
It has gone into the pile of things to be pinned and quilted..
I started another mini from Jo Morton's book Jo's Little Favorites, this one is called Bordered Toile. I really have to credit my friend Lisa with pointing out the beauty of this pattern to me. And then I found the perfect toile fabric at Quilters Harvest, so it was meant to be! There are quite a few more borders to go before I can call this a finish. The bonus is that the left over 1" strips from the borders are going into my Marvelous Mini Monday blocks!
I have had a final THREE shopping trips to Quilters Harvest in Warracknabeal plus a phone order...or two! They are closing at the end of this month and I will really really miss this shop. But I don't have a picture of my last lot of purchases, because they were not really fabric orientated, mainly notions and a new ruler. This fabric came from Somerset Patchwork in suburban Melbourne, purchased over the Queens birthday weekend. Unfortunately this reproduction specialist shop is also closing - but will maintain an online presence. I dont shop online...I do enough spending in the flesh, to venture online would send me broke!
This is the yardage I purchased in 15 minutes with the family waiting in the car. This is the evidence your honor, the reason I do not dare shop online...guilty of buying reproduction fabric in yardage, not fat 1/8's!
Happy quilting Sue.
