After I bought my Last Minute Patchwork book, I also purchased my Kona Cotton Solids set for my plain spoken kit. You all know about that one.
Then, I bought The Modern Quilt Workshop and Quiltmakers Color Workshop. It's coming this week. NONE of the quilt shops here in my Alberta city carry either of these books, so I ordered it online.
THEN, I took a quick peek at my favourite quilt shop here and picked up a pattern book that was backordered for me when I was making the baby rail fence. It's The Best of Weekend Quilts . I almost didn't get it but then there were a few patterns in there that I thought would be perfect easy ones to do...and since I need guidance on measurements for making blocks, etc, I figured another pattern book would be fine. Also, they had in their clearance section, big freezer bag packs of scrap fabrics (coordinating) for $5.00 a bag. One had a whole bag of the same fabrics I used for the baby rail quilt (combined with what I have left over from the project = another quilt! ) Another bag had coordinating fabrics, among them some amy butler and similar! Another was a bag of scrap cotton chenille in a rose colour that would coordinate perfectly with the Amy Butler bag of scraps!
These were wee scraps - they look like leftover cuts from sample quilts! There were pieces as big as 1/2 meter! Great find!
So. Aside from trying to find some navy/white cotton prints, I am banned from buying more until I make at least 2 quilts.
Enough spending. More quilting.
