Squares from AJ and more Textile Trader goodies.

Late last week I had some squares from the lovely AJ arrive in the mail. These are the blocks I whipped up AJ! It was so nice to take a break from those fiddley 2 inch squares! Thanks hon! Here is a link to the same quilt pattern that she has done. I was thinking of staggering the name blocks diagonally, but it looks pretty cool going from top to bottom in the middle.

Textile Traders still have their amazing special on fabric at the moment. I am suprised they have any stock left! I popped in today to pick up some more prints. Didn't buy anything the same as the other week! I thought the pink strippey one would be a perfect border for Caitlins quilt and the white background with small rainbow dots as an outside border for Grace's Log Cabin quilt, when I get around to sewing the blocks together.

Notice the top print? The cowboy Micheal Miller print? Looks like the odd one out doesn't it? Ad and I have been thinking about setting up a little fabric shop, maybe, just maybe. I brought it in preparation for that. Stay tuned....

Now we are off to Rottnest for the rest of the week, so no blogging from me! No WIP Wednesday or Flashback Friday. I am taking Mum's old Elna sewing machine though and all my 3.5 inch squares to whip up my Dissappearing 9 Patch. So there will be some sewing to share when I come back. :) Have a great week everyone.
