SHHHHHHHHHHH ..... Stash Building!
This week has seen me back into the swing of full time shifts now that Master 6 is feeling miles better. As a result, the quilting has taken a back seat. Still that is no reason not to pick up gorgeous fabric when you see it ... Right?
I managed to find some bits and pieces at my local fabric store which was too hard to resist. Off the bolt and for an absolute bargin. So I got 30cm pieces of each.
I also got some pieces of felt, as I had read a tip of practicing FMQ with two pieces of felt, instead of wasting fabric and batting to make quilt sandwiches. At 89cents a piece, good value I think. Now to just sit and give it a good go.
This morning has been spent, preparing for Father's Day on Sunday. I managed to find what I needed quickly and popped into an A&R store which is clearing out. I found a fabulous quilting book, which I also snapped up.
Imagine my exciement when I arrived home to an express post package! I managed to find Terrain Charm Packs online for a steal ... so got three.
I have a half plan in mind, so will work on that over the weekend.
I plan on basting Master 6's quilt
and putting together the backing for Miss 7's quilt.
I am looking forward to a very productive weekend.
