I had a lovely delivery of fabric this week; it came from Mariner’s Compass Quilt Shop, I won a gift certificate in the 1st quarter of the FAL and it was lovely to go shopping for fun rather than for fabric with a specific purpose in mind.
I had a browse of their online store and immediately decided to add the Fancy Forest pattern to my shopping basket:
Leah had requested a fox quilt and I decided that I could use the fox block from this pattern and make good use of the other animals too. I’ve already made one fox. The rest of the gift I used on a FQ bundle of Mini Moderns by Lori Holt:
These were definitely picked for no particular reason other than I love the look of them:
Even the selvedge on this will be used:
Amanda who runs the shop was great at sorting this order for me and it arrived in less than a week and without a customs charge (phew!) – thanks Amanda for sponsoring the FAL.
In addition to these I popped into the Exeter Sewing Machine Shop yesterday to get some Aurifil 2600 50 weight for piecing more foxes. I’m normally a fan of Gutxrmann for piecing but I discovered that Aurifil was better value for money as well as being a closer colour match to Kona Silver.
Have you stashed anything this week? I’m linking up with:
