Did I really need more fabric?

Ths week has been a little bit of an indulgence.

A great backing for my square eyes quilt, and a spotty geen binding fabric!

I have gone all feed sacky again after seeing a great pattern in a very old American patchwork magazine. These repros are all moda.

These can be added to the mix from my stash.Some of these are original from a few bundles I bought on Etsy a few years ago.

And a bit of what you fancy- does you good,  so this is Flea Market Fancy  by Denise Schmidt. I added the bright orange as it went soooo well! Not sure what I am going to do with this but i would like to come up with a hand sewn project to take travelling to Norway with me  in a couple of weeks. 

The house had a good clean this morning so I am awarding myself time out for good behaviour- cutting mat here I come! 



  1. Love the oranges and grays...I went to Joanne's Fabrics shop yesterday and came home with 3 new pieces...going to put the "pinks" into a table mat for Valentines decorating...then bought a rug backing plastic mesh to try out a rag tied rug...I always have too many projects in my head...can't wait to see what you do with your new stash!

    1. Dont get me started on Jo ann fabrics- I have to say I envy you living in the States when it comes to fabric stores! I havent been over to visit since last February, so I have severe withdrawal symptoms! Cant wait to see your rug!

      Good luck!xx

  2. Some gorgeous fabrics there.I love the oranges and greys too.

    1. Orange is not really my colour but having said that I am so often drawn to it! It is such a vibrant colour. Hx
