Fabric Sale!

I had a lovely day yesterday with my 2 craft cabin friends, Burnice and Tash!

We went to Newick Village Hall for a fabric sale by Janet from Sleeping Bear Crafts:

where we bought lots of fabric!  Then we drove to Uckfield and had lunch in a lovely sandwich shop, and a little wander round the shops.

I made this ‘Disappearing 9 patch’ quilt at a workshop with Janet some time ago, but I have just finished it!

I used an old Moda charm pack, called Portobello Market I had sewn the blocks with the cream fabric at the workshop, and bought the green fabric.  So a few months along, I decided to finish the quilt and needed the border fabric.  Well, of course, hardly any left!  And none of the new ranges would goSad smile.  I rather fancied a red border and luckily found this small print from Portobello Market.  I am quite pleased with it, in fact, it looks quite Christmassy with red and green!

I had a go at machine quilting some little motifs (a little wonky!) as well as quilting in the ditch.  The backing is pieced from another old Moda range called Peace on Earth.
