These are some of my purchases at the Festival of Quilts. Plenty of messy stuff for me to play with. I am really anxious to get on with some rust dyeing - now I have no excuse. Stitching patterns for shibori and some strong thread. I need this for my impending dyeing day with the Spinners, Weavers and Dyers dyeing day.
I was delighted to find the 'Roses from the Heart' stand and came home with three kits for the bonnets I have signed up to make. On the list of convicts I managed to find three with the same names as friends. More about this project in an other blog.
And this is the fabric that I wasn't going to buy!! Lovely Japanese fabric fat quarters from 'Seven Islands' who come from Los Angeles every year with the most irresistable fabrics.
Last but not least the reproduction mid 19th century prints for the two quilts I am contemplating. Doesn't seem a lot but it made a serious dent in my wallet!!!!!!!!
