More fabric


Isn't buying fabric addictive? One piece just isn't enough and you try to tell yourself "I'm going to be good and not buy anymore"..............yeah right!!! I bought these fat 1/4s at my local Newsagent. They have a lovely little corner with all sorts of quilting bits and bobs and every time I go in there the fabric calls me over. Good thing I live 125km away from the Newsagent. I'm planning to do a Stack n Slash with them and thought I would add lace here and there. I have never made one before but can't wait to get started. Just have to finish what I am doing at the moment. Don't want a UFO flying around :)



When I went to Hetty's Patch with my sister I just happened to pick up this fabric. I could have picked up more.........lots more.........but was trying to be good. Now I am home I wish I had been bad, very bad!! The 2 top pieces I just had to have and the 2 bottom pieces have already been cut to make the sashing and borders for my Friendship quilt from my quilting group. Once it is all finished I will post a pic to show you all.


Patchwork Hugs,

I have never heard of a newsagent selling fabric :) It would be my first stop shopping. I like your choices of fabric too Debs and look forward to seeing what you make with it all.

Thanks everyone for your lovely comments. The wife of the Newsagent lives at Roxby Downs and has a Quilting shop up there. The husband is in Burra and she puts some of her stuff in there. Wonderful for us Burra Quilters!!
