(Another) retail confession

Quilter Going Bananas suggested I should 'fess up on my purchases on our quilting trip last week. I feel Mum & I were reasonably self-restrained, despite the considerable temptations! We bought these fabrics ('Flea Market Fancy' by Denyse Schmidt & 'Summer in the City' by Urban Chiks)...
... to make up this pattern ('Candy' by Melly & Me) ...
... some 'Freshcut' by Heather Bailey, just because (!) ...
... a layer-cake-friendly 'Figgy Pudding' pattern by Figtree Quilts ...
... and a couple of fat quarters to add to my Dear Jane stash. These are from a beautiful new Moda reproduction range called 'Collection for a Cause'.
Weren't we well-behaved?!


  1. Thankyou so much for showing us around Anni's shop she is one of my favourite Designers & I always buy up big from her at the Sydney Quilt show...Love the fabrics You brought & yes you were very well behaved I think.

  2. Mmm..if that is restraint I would love to see what you can do when you are out of control!! Gorgeous purchases...really like that Urban Chik fabric!! Cathyx

  3. Yummy yummy fabrics. Nothing better than new fabrics in the sewingroom.

  4. You have some pretty fabric there, looking forward to the finished product.

  5. Of course you were well-behaved what you bought is something that you had to have.

  6. Lovely purchases Bloom, and how nice to have your mum visiting, hope she is keeping well, haven't seen her for ages...

  7. Well-behaved?! What does that mean?! We all need re-stocking!!!!Beautiful fabrics and I love the Candy bag, what a cutie!!!
