I participated in Park City Girl's Blogger's Quilt Festival a few weeks ago which was fabulous. Not only did I enjoy visiting many blogs and looking at the amazing quilts, I was also lucky enough to win a prize from one of the sponsors. My prize was a $50 voucher from The Fat Quarter Shop. I spent quite some time deciding what to buy and today my parcel arrived.
It is very exciting getting a parcel in the mail. I don't have a huge fabric stash and tend to buy fabrics with a particular quilt in mind. However, the voucher had to be spent! I settled on a number of solid fabrics for which I have in mind some baby wholecloth quilts. In also included a dotty fabric which I intend to be the binding. Here are my purchases.
I have also bought some more Aurifil threads which I have recently started using on my longarm machine - they quilt up beautifully and have a lovely sheen to them. These were bought from Always Quilting - they include some gorgeous variegated threads which should look great on the solids I have bought.
I am looking forward to making these baby quilts and will be sure to post them on my blog.
