Chookyblue comes to town

The ever cheerful & enthusiastic Chookyblue popped in for a visit last week. Being the terrible influence that she is, she had talked me into visiting Hatched & Patched before I could blink! Here is just a sample of the temptation which greeted us at Anni Downs' beautiful shop:
Luscious 'Ava Rose' fabrics by Tanya Whelan greeted us at the front door ...
... followed closely by a new, 'quick & easy quilt' design by Anni made up in Ava Rose fabrics. This pattern quickly made it to my bag of purchases.
There were beautiful samples from Anni's newest book, 'The World as it Should Be' ...
... including the delightful 'A Peaceful Life' quilt, ideal for farm boys, old or young.
This book managed to jump into my bag too!
And there was general gorgeousness every which way: The 'Mill Flower Quilt' ...
... needlepunch from 'Simple Pleasures' ...
and stitcheries, also from 'Simple Pleasures' ...
... sweet 'Making Tea' wallhanging ...
... 'My Heart My Home' quilt ...
... and cute little felt Christmas baubles.
There was also a beautiful version of Natalie Lymer's 'Truly Scrumptious' quilt.
But this is the quilt that stopped me in my tracks on this visit:
An astonishing foundation-pieced beauty by Chris Jurd. I stood staring & admiring this quilt for ages. Very impressive! Thanks Chooky for a great day. My bank account is so much the poorer thanks to you!
