Old and New

Kim from peach quilting here is asking us to show our oldest piece of fabric and newest piece of fabric and having a bloggy give away if you link your show and tell to her post.

I thought this was an interesting idea so I would play along.  My first quilt was roostin' roosters and I bought the pattern and fat quarter pack from the Quilt show back in November 2006, and finished the quilt in January 2007.  Here are two of the 8 panels in the quilt.

Looking through my scrap bags I managed to find a few scraps left over from this project, so that is my first fabric purchase, and what is left of it. I thought I saw some of the blue check in my stash a few weeks ago, but couldn't locate it today.

I have two new fabric purcases.  One is this Woodland bloom FQ pack, I have no plans for it, I just bought it because I liked it, and why not :)

I also recently purchased this lovely stash of Ruby FQ's in flannel and plan to make my son and his wife a snuggly house warming present with it, as they have just bought a new house that they will move into in February when he comes home from Queensland.


  1. Oooo nice bright and colorful fabrics Sue. It will be wonderful in ANY project. :)

  2. I love flannels and it is certainly a gorgeous stack you have there.

  3. What a great idea Sue. I think my oldest piece of fabric is checks too. Love your newbies!

  4. I love the chooks. One of the firt quilts I ever made was a chook....from the Chook Shed gals. Your new fabric is scrumptious. Best reason for buying it is because we want to. ;)

  5. Very nice - good luck on the drawing. It is always interesting to see how our tastes have changed over time... :)
