I have been a very lucky girl. My friend's Mum Anita, a quilter arrived with a car full of goodies for me. Talk about combined Christmas and Birthday all at once.
All sorts of quilting books to give me inspiration. Quite a library. Packs of writing paper and envelopes with quilting designs on them. A bundle of wadding for my hexie quilt.
A lovely collection of Liberty prints.
A huge collection of fabulous fat quarters in all sorts of colours and prints.
And finally, the lend of a floor mounted quilting frame for me to try. I had mentioned that I was struggling on the larger quilts to keep the fabric from bunching up when I hand quilt. Did try a hoop without a stand but just couldn't get comfortable with it.
How exciting is that, now I need to find somewhere to store the fabric. Will have a clear out of any fabrics that I already have but will never use. A spring clean is in order.
Need a shoehorn to squeeze the fabrics into the cupboards and drawers.
A huge thank you to Anita.
