New fabric

Last month while in Adelaide I went shopping for fabric. My quilting group starts up again this month and I needed to buy fabric so that I am ready to make quilts that are planned for this year.

Our President has been kind enough to teach us "new ones" a sampler quilt. Another member is going to teach all members a quilt called "Box Floral". I have also bought a metre of fabric to give members a piece to make a block each for me to then make a friendship quilt out of the blocks.

I have to confess that I did buy extra but then who wouldn't when the fabric was normally between $15.00 and $18.00 and it was going out for $3.00 and $ 5.00.

Other quilts planned with this fabric are a Pinwheel quilt (love pinwheels) and a quilt that has old doilies on it. These I will teach myself to do at home.

Hey Deb, was I with you when you bought that pretty red floral material in the first photo??? That is very yummy material.
