Fabric festival

What a brilliant day. My favourite patchwork shop, Hetties patch is having a sale. 50% off a huge range of selected fabrics! and if you buy the end of the bolt it's $10 per metre. Look at my stash.

The pink one is cabbage roses, and this will back my swoon quilt. I bought the end of the bolt 5.7 metres there.

The rosebud one is 4.5 metres, no plans for it yet, but a pretty backing stash.

I loved the toile, end of the bolt on the black 3. 5 metres. How pretty is this. I am going to back the Michelle Hill quilt with this.

And I loved the lilac toile, but stopped myself and only bought a metre, can you see the cute bunnies. I have bought this before and used it in a nursery quilt. So that will just be tucked away.

I also grabbed this cute nursery panel, for some secret squirrel sewing. Not allowed to tell you ( yet). This was half price.


.... Drum roll..... When I got home look what was in the mail. My fat quarter stack that I ordered to make the new Gail Pan Christmas quilt in.

And, yes there is more.

My aurofil threads also arrived, so now I can see what all the fuss is about


The range i chose was eye candy, as I tend to use, soft shabby chic colours in most of my sewing. I am going to use them to quilt my swoon quilt with. These were 40% off at the fat quarter shop, so even with postage a bargain.

The happy colours was a donation from the very generous Fq shop that my bloggy friend Sue Preece won. I will be catching up with her soon to deliver her prize in person.

Now I have all of this backing fabric, and lovely new quilting thread I have no excuse to get some of those UFO' s done.

Better go, I have some serious sewing to do.



  1. Love all your goodies but especially the fats for the Gail Pan Quilt.
