this is it

it cost the equivalent of about $7 for the FQ *gulp* hardly seems worth it when I look at it in the quilt, it is very cute, but it doesn't stand out amongst all the rest, which of course is not what you really want any one fabric to do...still it has alpacas on it, so it has to be good.

Ironically its not my favourite fabric. that is the one in the lower right hand corner of the quilt in the top pic. Circles of colour, its like stained glass, it was from a swap and I absolutely adore the fabric, sadly only have a tiny strip left!


Ack! I just posted in the Craftalong thread asking about that EXACT fabric, and a bunch of the others too  Roll Eyes  Love this quilt!

rlynn and teachart

thanks so much..its so good to get comments...makes me feel all warm and fuzzy

lieblings...I am sure that that fabric is available other places for a lot less, it was a very chi chi shop in galway..and ireland is insane for fabric prices at the best of times. I just couldn't resist it.

Oh Edel, how flipping gorgeous is this? I love it!  Grin I can't pick a favorite fabric, they all work so well together.

I am actually pretty happy with how the fabric colours work. i look at so many people on here, who just seem to have a knack for it. I tend to play it safe, but I didn't this time, i went for big colours and patterns and I think I pulled it off!...I find lots of excuses to touch and fold this quilt..lol


and I have started another one tonight...

I love the colors!

Also, I am teaching myself to quilt now, and I think I may need to steal and adapt this pattern for one of my next projects.  I'll need to play with it some to make it fit the space I have in mind, but I think it will work.  Thanks!

I love this!! The fabrics look amazing together, and that stained glass fabric is indeed awesome! By the way, a finished quilt, whatever its little imperfections and quirks, beats a half finished perfectionist UFO any day Smiley
