Oops I did it again...

...I did Sainsburys first and then diverted via Darley Dale on the way home to get some Perle to quilt this UFO WIP.  You can see the sun shining in the courtyard in the background of this photo - that is why I need a hand-sitiching WIP - so I can sit out in the sun and sew.
  Anyway, I was mooching round the quilt shop wishing that they had some of the fabrics from Saints and Pinners, Seamstar, Backstitch etc (buttons on RHS of my blog for all three) rather than a ton of stuff I'm not massively mad about when I turned a corner and that's when the accident happened.  I tripped over a new range.  Just in.  Oops.
Any thoughts?  XXL hexagons?

  5. They are the fabrics I used on my linen 'Love' quilt and cushions, they look brill..Re;cushions, I used Bondaweb and zig zaged around.. Do you have the book Material Obsession ? There is a great quilt with pinewheel blocks (quilt is called Cowboy Baby) which would look brill with those fabrics and maybe a solid colour picked out ?

  6. Didn't I just see you on another blog noting a lack of stash? This is how it starts, lovely lovely fabric in search of a project to use it. :)

    Not sure of suggestions, I've got a stack of my own that I've been having the same conversation, but it's lovely. I may have to find some of my own.

  10. Just to taunt you a little...quiltexpressions.com just sent out an email on their clearance fabric. They ship internationally. I think I spied some Amy Butlers for $7.40/yd.
