Love a (few) fat quarters!

I know – I usually just pick one….. but I’m Just back from Festival and I bought a few fat quarters that I thought you might like to see. You can’t go all that way and not bring back a few treats!

This is my favourite – Bobbins and Bits by Pat Sloan from Traditions at the White Swan stand. Pretend selvedges with quotes, made me chuckle.


Closely followed by this ice cream truck fabric by Timeless Treasures of Soho purchased from Graphic Impressions, yummy!


Then there are these Kaffes, I actually have a project in mind for these 🙂


a few more, some are sneaky 1/2 yards, the middle ones are Art Gallery.


And these little beauties called “Hearty Good Wishes”  by Janet Clare for Moda from her thread sketches.


and I also picked up this “Squedge Ruler by Phillips FiberArt to have a play.


VERY restrained I thought!

    Where is Festival? I’m assuming its fabric based?
    Love the FQ, they’re pretty.

      International Quilt Festival is in Houston, Texas, it’s the biggest! There is some yarn and a few jewelery stands but it’s mostly fabric and quilt related tools. I’ll be writing a review for Popular Patchwork Magazine 🙂
