I did think I would hide my recent purchases from Hettie's Patches sale from you all, but what the heck I am amongst friends!
There are some fat quarters, some half a metre cuts and quite a few metres. The blue polka dots had to come home, because at $10 p/m it will make the perfect border and backing fabric for some more kids charity quilts. Thread is essential to life (like fabric), especially when its on sale and I did not have these colours in variegated and I am thinking/hoping variegated thread will make my FMQ look better! Dont ask why I brought a pink and blue floral, as I am not a floral person! Perhaps a bag?
Now the purpose of buying cot quilt panels actually alluded me at the time (5 in total, 2 are the same Maisy panel that made a cot quilt HERE), however that was merely because I could smell a bargain and my brain was distracted. I think some women have that reaction when they see shoes on sale......for me its fabric!
I have a collection of pirate fabric, so I couldn't resist this panel! I am not sure if I am going to leave to make the quilt run sideways (do you think kids care about this stuff?) or try and add length top and bottom?
Once I got home and realised that we didn't have friends expecting babies this year, I didn't care, as I want to continue making kids charity quilts and using up my novelty stash. In addition they will be great for practising my FMQ on!
Happy quilting, Sue SA.
