Craft fair purchases

On Saturday I headed off to the Craft and Quilt fair with my 3 friends Kim, Kate and Meredith, We had such a good time together. Before the fair I found out that a local shop from here was having a stall there and they had Tilda products, so can you guess the first stall we visited first?? Yes, I was very excited. Fresh Fabrics had a great variety of tins and fabrics, I love these 2 tins so I grabbed those pretty quick.

Then I found a piece of fabric the same as the tin so I was very excited then,



Even the lids are pretty.





The tilda fabric is beautiful, I bought these lovely pieces. I have a big plan for these babies. They won't stay in my stash for very long.







I also bought some fat quarters of basic dots, they go well with so many other fabrics, The 30's print on the end was so cute, I just had to buy that.









I really loved the blue with the brown spot, I thought that would make great tilda doll legs.











I also got 2 notepads by Anni Downs and a cute stitchery kit by Nat Bird.













I had 2 quilts in the exhibition, this one is called All wrapped up. A free pattern by Kate Spain.















And my Remember when quilt, by Libby Richardson, this is now going to hang in my quilting room at work. Its so pretty.


So with all those purchases I should be kept pretty busy for a little while at least.


I hope you have a great week and you find some sewing time.
