Building up mustards in my stash

I teach basic computer skills and web design for a living and on Friday one of my lovely participants gave me the most gorgeous bunch of native flowers as well as a lovely succulent in a pot.

While at my local quilt shop I picked up a gorgeous mustard from the range ‘A journey through time’ and since I can never stop at just one I picked up a couple more. Mostly on a mustard theme which is one of the colourways I’m trying to build up in my stash.

To see the details of the fabrics you’ll need click on the image.  I have started to put the detail of fabrics on the images as often when I’m looking at a blog I’ll want to know exactly what fabric it is, in case I want to pick up a piece. I think this probably shows my detail oriented, library background.

I’ve also run up a very rough, quick cover for my Kobo from scraps left over from having quilt tops quilted.

I’m getting ready to go to the Central Goldfields Quilters retreat next weekend. I haven’t been away to a quilting retreat before so I’m quite excited but have lots to do to get ready, so I best be off to finish those borders as well as everything on my agenda.

  1. Hi Jenn
    What a great idea to label your fabric photos so. Very helpful to your readers…I for one am about to search for the Journey Through Time range.

    On another post you talked about the red/green applique quilt – what a lucky break to come across such helpful curators. I look forward to seeing your progress on the patterns.
    cheers, Kate

    1. Hi Kate

      Glad to know it helps someone. I’m always wondering ‘what fabric is that?‘, and I do browse Marcus Bros and Windham a fair bit, but there’s so many fabric houses out there. I’ve been watching your ‘mad little birds’ quilt, its just gorgeous. I look forward to seeing more of it.
