On Tuesday I set off for a great trek across to the other side of Melbourne to visit Amitie Textiles for the first time. Amitie were holding a sale, so I thought it was a good excuse to finally make the trip.
I met a friend halfway, so that we could make our way together, it was quite an expedition.
I brought a mixture of fat quarters and 30cm cuts, mainly to fill gaps in my stash-of-small-cuts that I use for applique. I like to have a good spectrum available to me.
The pink I bought is to bind this quilt, which is now ready to be quilted.
The greens were purchased for the next ring on my Wheel of Fortune Quilt. It is looking very wrinkly! As it gets bigger, it gets harder to fold up into a bag, to transport here and there. Because I have used a pen that disappears when you iron it, to mark the stitching lines, I am not ironing it yet, so wrinkly it will stay. The greens will be the last full ring of squares, before partial rings help square it up.
Another recent acquisition was this lovely feather fabric, called Farmington by Martha Negley, in Olive and Aqua. I saw this fabric and immediately fell in love with the top colour-way. I brought the Aqua version for my aqua obsessed daughter, Amelia. Mine is most likely destined to become an ipad cover.
Now I am bracing myself for the Winter school holidays, (my least favourite) as the kids finish term 2 today. We have a few activities planned, but mostly I am looking forward to lazy mornings in our pyjamas. Is it school holidays in your neck of the woods?
