Fabrics Galore!

Last week I took a trip up to Fabrics Galore in Lavender Hill, London.

I see their stand at the shows, and purchase the great fabrics. Lovely linens for bags and Liberty Tana Lawn at a third off regular price! What's not to like! However I discovered that they were the only shop in the UK to stock ALL of the Liberty Lifestyle Collection. So in the car I hopped.

This was what I walked away with, and the Liberty Lifestyle to follow! Gulp! So worth the visit!

In the meantime 'back at the ranch' my Stash Club from Amitie arrived:

Won't they all work well together!

I quickly stitched the free block pattern that came with the fabrics (I don't want to get behind, as I have the Barbara Brackman Grandmothers Choice to keep on top of – pictures coming soon):

Yes, I know, I don't trim triangle points!

Jen and Lucy are in Houston at Quilt Market, showing the World their brilliant patterns. Check out the blog. And get your order in here!

On the stitching front I have had a surge on my String Snowballs. I started it a few years back with one block to see how it turned out, then thought it was a lot of work and left it alone. But each time I taught my String Quilts class, out came the sample to show, and I would think, that I really would like a whole quilt of that!

So, some of you might have seen the blocks being stitched a few posts back on this blog, but this is now the 'border testing phase':

You will see which I went with when the quilting is done! I stitched the backing together this morning, so no excuses now!

I used my Snowball template for cutting, these are now in stock, at £8 each (inc. p and p).
