Don't you just hate it when you are struck with a great idea for a quilt and you find yourself short of fabric..usually background fabric? That’s exactly what happened to me as I went through my white on white fabrics and discovered I only had fat quarters and not the 2 meter chunk I needed to get started. So what to do, what to do? As my nearest LQS is about 18 miles away and ordering fabric would take days, I wondered, could there be anything closer? I knew we had a fabric shop in town, but in the past she has mainly been dress-weight fabrics and fabrics for dance costumes, but I figured it was worth a look.
Much to my delight the owner of Mo’s Fabric and Dance (on St. Matthews St. in Rugby) has just recently gone on a shopping spree and has brought in several gorgeous 100% cottons.
The most expensive ones were only £8.99/m and many of them 54" wide! Happy Days!! I not only got the white on white that I needed, but also a range of other colours to feature in my next quilt.
Until next time...♥
