On Tuesday last week, I visited the local Big Box Store and came home with these two fabrics which I have shown you before.
The pink is being used for the bag that I started on Monday, the beige has been added to the stash – one can never have enough neutral fabric, right?
On Saturday, in wild, wet weather, WM drove me across the city to the Fabric Remnant Warehouse. Our mission was to choose a ‘border’ fabric for the Country Houses quilt which is to go on our bed (the sooner the better with temperatures dipping to 3°C - 37°F - last night). We came home with four metres of this beige and cream pin-striped fabric from the “A Day in the Country” range.
And this flannelette fabric somehow came home with us too!
It is destined to be a quilt for Older Grandson who, for some reason unknown to all the adults in his life, is mad about Formula 1 racing!
On Sunday, DD and I went to the final day of the “30% off all fabric” sale at the Big Box Store. These half-metre-pieces ($2.80 metre) will be added to our stash:
and this pile of fleece ($3.50 metre) will become ponchos and/or animal blankies.
On Wednesday I had an appointment in a suburb quite far from home so took advantage of the distance travelled to visit another branch of the Big Box Store. I needed some black flannelette to go with the racing car fabrics shown above but I also ended up with these three half metre pieces.
Perhaps there’s a navy and white quilt in my future?
Finally, yesterday was the monthly meeting of the Caring Hearts Community Quilters. A lady in my quilting class is de-stashing and made a generous donation of quite a large amount of fabric. These pretties followed me home. Now remember, these are not mine – they are to be used in quilts and returned to the group for donation to a local hospital.
Better get sewing on some of my WIPs so that I can get to these!
