Here are some pics of my 'necessary' purchases at Symposium. I still haven't studied my new camera so the pics ain't too hot. I had to buy more batiks from Wright Fabrics in Morrinsville. They are so cheap and so irresistable and anyway I have been using some of mine lately so I feel it's 'necessary' to start collecting them again JUST IN CASE! I'm sure I have a pattern that I could use with this piece so I bought 2 metres (@ $12.00 a metre it's a bargain). I had to have it. The folded fat quarters and the three on the left are from Toad Hall.
The cottons are Australian polyneons but these were from a little shop in Johnsonville I think. 5 for $25 (my friend uses them for quilting and says they are fantastic!!)
These big pieces underneath are also from Milton Wright's shop
And the smaller pieces again from Toad Hall in Otaki. Susan Clare has a beautiful range of fabrics (never stop there when you're in a hurry) and she had them all marked down to $4.00 per fat quarter. Some were in a basket at 10 for $20.... well isn't it wise to buy a bargain when you see one. The patterns are also from Susan's shop. Have I told you about her mystery quilt. It's into the second month. Have a look at her website www.susanclaire??They are laminated too.. wicked idea. $6.00 each .. bargains, bargains, bargains. And lastly I found Quilt Books from Hamilton. I bought myself More Reversible Quilts which is a Quilt As You Go book and the other two on appro for the Club. If the Committee don't want them I might end up buying them myself.JUST IN CASE I need them of course!!!
