I attended the Central Coast Modern Quilting Guild last night with my sister Ellen and had a wonderful evening, but I'll tell you about that later. First I need to show you some of my goodies from the Sydney Quilt Show. Becky, Saffron and I had a fabulous day browsing the stalls, discovering great fabric and talking to some lovely people (too many to mention).
Patchwork on Central Park had a few fat quarters of this Heather ross cutie on cotton (not flannel) amongst others!
They also had this Nano IRO fabric (sorry don't know the name). It is incredibly soft, both the fabric and the colours, and I'm looking forward to trying this with Toni Coward's (from Make It Perfect) Shearwater Katfan pattern that I bought from Kelani Fabrics (not sure how I'll go with something that's not a quilt - eek).
Kelani also had a huge range of Japanese fabrics that were so cute. I spent way too long choosing my favourite for a dress for Sarah, and finally settled on apples on pink (at closing time).
There are just too many gorgeous things to show, but I'll leave you with this interesting grey fabric that I'd never seen before. It is a hand dyed solid from Gees Bends. It has lovely inconsistencies in the colour (its hard to capture in the photo). Sorry, I can't remember who I purchased this from. If you know, leave a comment, as they have lots of other wonderful colours that I might like to get my hands on.
All in all a day very well spent!
