For those of you who were helping me worry about trying to find more fabric to finish my quilt (see last post), I went in to the original shop today and although they didn’t have any of this left (as I’d bought it all last time)
they did have some of this
Just goes to show it often pays to shop local and what’s a shade or two amongst friends?
He couldn’t tell me the name of the maker – although I suspect he just couldn’t be bothered to look it up – apart from to say it was from the States. So that narrowed it down a bit 🙄
Still, I couldn’t leave the shop with a mere half a metre of fabric so, with Christmas in mind, or that might just be an excuse if I’m honest, I came away with these two panels to make either cushions or, in the case of the sewing machine, to stretch it around a canvas and hang it on my sewing room wall if I can find any space, which I won’t be able to so a cushion it will probably be – or a bag.
You’ll be proud of me when I say I left a panel with a similar cat wearing a floppy hat and brandishing a paintbrush and artist’s palette behind.
I could always go back for it though.
