I want to make Jen Kingwell's My Small World quilt and have been gathering fabrics for it. I have a basket of them set aside but the show posed a great opportunity to pick up more, including some fat eighths.
assorted fabric for eventual use in My Small World quilt
Lately, I've had a bit of thing for rainbow colors in quilts and even started a Pinterest board dedicated to inspiration for an eventual project, so I looked around the show vendors for fabric that I could use in said hypothetical project. I hit the jackpot with these crossweave fat quarters. Only $2 each!
Assorted crossweave fat quarters - not the whole rainbow but enough
In crossweaves, the thread is dyed (rather than the cloth), and
woven with one color for warp and one for weft, blue and purple in this case.
The fabric used in Oxford cloth shirts is an example.
Just in case that's not enough "rainbow," I got this bundle of 20 10" squares from Free Spirit Designer Essentials solid color fabric.
And that text print you see in the background of all of these photos? That's a yard of Quilters Basic Perfect #MCS 13-45 designed by www.stof.dk (info taken from selvage). The text is all in French, ooh la la! It appears to be from a Danish company so I'm not hopeful about finding more.
I have enough fabric to keep me out of trouble for a while.
