After I decided to have a go at the Ohio Star block, I realised that I needed more fabric. What - more fabric - I must be mad!!! The problem was, that even though I have enough fat quarters and enough good lengths to start a fabric shop, nothing matched how I wanted it to. Luckily(?) the Fabric Guild let me know that I could visit either Friday or Sunday. My intention was to buy some coordinating fat quarters, about 12 altogether, but once you enter their warehouse plans can easily change. I didn't buy one fat quarter. But I did buy
Now I don't know if these are as good a buy as the fat quarters but I just couldn't resist them. They are Quilters Mix and are ready coordinated for you. To me they look like samples that you would get in a sample book but I don't have to worry about matching the blocks up now and I'm sure they will get used up better than the fat quarters would. These varied in price from £2 to £4.50.
There were so many things I couldn't resist
How about these, 3 yard lengths for £3.75 and already done in a patchwork design, great for some quick cheater quilts.
A ready printed cat just waiting to be sewn together - 99p.
Some more lengths, the one on the left 3 yards for £3.75, top right £2 a yard and bottom right 99p a yard.
I also bought buttons at 40p a pack, some broderie anglaise trim at 99p for 3 yards and, of course some sewing machine thread at 60p a reel. Couldn't show a picture of them as it came out very blurred.
There were also some paper craft bargains that I just had to have.
That was my Sunday, no sewing or gardening got done at all. I did visit my DS and DIL on the way home as they live quite near to the area of Leicester I went to.
