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.
Here is Block 3 of the Breast of Friends. I did finish it a little over a week ago but only now have found time to show you all.
Like with blocks 1 and 2 I found it enjoyable to put together. Block 4 is going to be very different to the last 3 and I think quicker to put together. I will post a pic of the next one once completed.
I have a lovely husband and 2 beautiful children.I live on a pastoral property running sheep and cattle. Due to where I live I do not have a quilting shop just down the road so when I do go away I take the opportunity to buy what I need for a project I have in mind and a little extra for that project I haven't yet thought about!
