Some Treasures

Good morning all, I just thought I would show some of my treasures that I bought at Glenrose Patchwork and Canning Town Patchwork in Warwick.
Love these yummy fabrics...

I also loved these pretty pale blue sweet fabric some of the girls were using and so had to have some as well as some pretty ric rac and trim. I also have been flirting with the idea of making some blocks using the paper lozenges in the style of the Lucy Boston blocks.
So much fun. I do have to work on my fussy cutting quite a bit but I am pleased with the result. I am wanting the more muddy vintage looking fabrics so diving into the fabric draws is in order. I am going to aspire to using only those fabrics in my stash...hhmm! I just love playing around with them in different combinations.
I think though I am probably going to cheat and applique the blocks to a background rather than paper piecing the whole quilt....still thinking!
Big Happy Birthday wishes to my lovely friend Fiona from Bubzrugz xx
Enjoy the rest of your day,
Namaste & Blessings,
Michelle xxx

  25. Love your new fabrics. The fussy cut blocks are amazing. It makes me want to try it. Maybe one day! Also thank you for the free pattern for the "Heart Song for a Friend." I have stitched several of your patterns and the alphabet letters I bought and made them into gifts for friends and they have been a hit! So, again thank you for sharing your wonderful talents with us. Nola
