New Purchases

I picked up these two prints from the Friendship Collections for a Cause by Moda.  The range was based on a 1850's signature or friendship quilt.

I think the red will do nicely for this block.

And the cream print was too pretty to leave behind.

I bought a new book too.

I was hoping to go to the exhibition at the Queensland Art Gallery : Quilts 1700 - 1945 from the Victoria and Albert Museum.  I didn't make the trip so I bought the book instead.  Actually, I bought the original London catalogue book because the Australian one is sold out.  It's brilliant, lots of pictures and lots of history.  

I missed out on Queensland, but I am going to Quilts in the Barn at Wonga Park.  I will be going on Friday, I'd love to say hello if you are going too.


  1. Nice fabrics and a cute block. I've recently bought the cream one myself. Looking froward to seeing you at QITB :)

  2. Lovely fabrics!
    I am planning to go to QITB on Friday too. Hope to see you there. :)

  3. I've also got the same red fabric, i think it's perfect for that block.
    I'm pleased to say that i have finally made a start on my blocks. Blocks 1 & 2 are done and block 3 is being prepped... i'm really enjoying doing the applique :))) cheers...Marian
