Lots of Lovely Fabric.

Isn't it strange when you think about something and then it happens? Last week I ordered some fabric (more about that later) and this morning I was driving back from the gym (!) wondering when it would arrive. I drove up to the house and there on the doorstep was the parcel.

I ordered the fabric from Karen Gray's etsy shop. She also has a lovely blog that you can find here. The fabric was beautifully packaged and the delivery was very fast. Would you like to see what I ordered?

These are six yummy fat quaters called "Olive Rose" by Valori Wells for Freespirit. I plan to make my Mum a bag for christmas with them. I'll show you it when it's finished.


I love these fabrics from Amy Butler's Midwest Modern range.
I'm planning to make place mats for the dinning room from it with this pattern which the lovely Marie, my bag swap partner sent me.

Finally another look at the christmas quilt I'm making that I showed in my last post. I was planning for it to be a lap quilt/throw but I think it would take too long to make and as there's lots of hand work on it I thought it would be better displayed as a wall hanging.

This isn't the final layout, I've just layed them out like this for the picture (and there are more to make).
Bye for now, Maria.
