Doughty's were holding a fabric roadshow. Going later in the day was a good plan, it was much calmer than when we arrived at the start of their last sale and we were able to browse easily and get fabric cut without queueing for ages. We also got to buy the remaining cakes, mmm lemon drizzle, to support Breast Cancer. DD bought a great selection of creams and browns to make her first quilt. I bought the fabrics above, the cream and turquoise for the Fat Quarter Frenzy quilt I started at Country Roads Quilters last week and the brown and rust for another quilt I'm planning using the same pattern.
Once home I finished joining the blocks for the FQFQuilt, version one:
Today has been a glorious, sunny Autumn day and this morning we took GS2 on a walk in the woods, he had a great time playing in the stream and collecting minibeasts, DH and I collected blackberries and hazelnuts for an afternoon treat. I love foraging.
Back at home DH sat down to play his guitar for the first time in a very long time and I headed to the cutting board. I got all these sets cut to make another version of the FQFQuilt. Most of these fabrics were sent to me for my birthday by my Global Piecers friends in South Dakota and I thought it would be great to use them all together. We have pheasants adorning our dining room so this quilt is destined for that room. Thank you Twila, Carole and Joan.
