At the Trentham show Dennis subscribed to British Patchwork and Quilting for me for this year and we got a free project bag. This is how it looked when we got it.
This is how it looked half way through the show after I had been to Magie Relph’s stall. Its a little more than it looks because there are several bundles of FQs in there. Then a bit later when I had been to the Out of Africa stall and put a second layer in (The top left two are more of Magie's . The rolls are colections of 10 hand-dyed FQs from Durban.
Then later on when I had been to Midsomer Quilting.
As you can see most of the fabric is African but there is some in there for a Japanese quilt I designed when I was in Bath which I intend to make for the Butterflies and Blooms theme competition at the Great Northern Quilts Show in Harrogate in September. I didn't bother photgraphing the the plains.
Of course A japanese quilt requires Sashiko so I bought this from this quilt shop in Bath. ( Another class mate at MidsomerQ snatched it from the shelf in front of me else I would have bought it there.
Dennis also got me this one which I had previously seen on the Internet. The quilts are very simple – not that that is necessarily a bad thing, especially with such busy fabrics. I was fascinated with the little logos at the beginning of each chapter though which spurned a quilt design of my own which is now in my journal awaiting time. I certainly have the fabric for it! Although if any of my Australian readers want to recommend a good web based store for Australiana fabrics I would be interested in expanding my stash yet further around the globe.)
