I have been laughing all week about the dripping tap or waterfall thing. Perhaps it really is time for me to get out more - lol !
In the absence of anything new to show here is a couple of pictures of another one of my unquilted tops. I made this about 2 years ago. The fabrics I used were from the very first order I got from the US.....I had the fabrics a while before I came up with a plan of what to do with them. This is also the first quilt that I did not have a pattern for. I like how it came out although I was so sick of those appliqued leaves in the border. One day I will get this quilted. Probably by machine as there are so many seams and I don't think I could face hand quilting it.
I really like 1930's prints - teamed up with white they always look so fresh and pretty.
On Thursday I went off to a new quilt shop which I saw advertised in a British quilting mag. I never knew this shop existed and indeed I found out it has only been there since June. Lovely shop with a nice selection of fabrics - although like most English quilt shops the prices are steep - most were £9-10 a yard. Still I bought a few nice fat quarters and a good long length of wadding.
But most exciting of all they have a long arm quilting machine and I got to see it in action. Oh how I would love one !!!!! I was asking about prices and so on and I may get this Lady of the Lake quilt done here. It would cost about £100 ( roughly $200 ). I will have a think about it. Or otherwise I could just have it basted there ready for hand quilting - I forgot to ask if they do that.
I am going back to my trianges in a minute. Don't know what it is about Sunday afternoons but I always feel like stuffing my face with loads of chocolate and as I am trying to lose weight that is not an option - lol !!
Enjoy the rest of the weekend. Next post should be of my finished blocks - fingers crossed !
