It was my turn to be underwhelmed....whilst the little shop was full of beautiful quilting fabrics...there was nothing there apart from a couple of designs that blew me away.
Now in the shops defence, I am most certainly not a quilter and have an untrained eye, but I was just expecting some more 'wow' factor fabrics....like lots of them on this site.
The staff were friendly..left me alone to dither whilst being there to help...and the prices were good. We pay a lot of money for quilting fabric in the UK!! Most of the fabrics were about $9 a yard so half a yard cost the same as a FQ over here.
These photo's were taken in my bay window....no idea why the light is so awful.
From the left the 1st 2 are Aunt Grace Classics - I love the blue and satsuma orange together.
The middle 3 are Aunt Grace Authentics - these will be turned into a hexy patchwork lap quilt...
The next 3 are Amy Butler - from her new Love range.
I also got a yard of this Alexander Henry nursery print...well it said nursery to me...I will save this for making new baby gifts.
Apart from the authentics, I bought because I liked, with no project in mind, which is why my haul is quite restrained. I had no projects in mind and as I said before nothing else totally bowled me over....now if I'd have found other fabric shops the story could be very different!! Next time we go I shall research fabric shops with more care!!
