Anyway today I went to one of my local sewing and material shops Millie Moon. I know the owners quite well now as I often buy fat quarters, thread, felt, buttons and all manner of other important sewing stuff from them. And as regular readers of this blog know, I have been to a couple of their classes as well.
Well, there I am trying to match some teal ribbon with some material and we find a beautiful Moda fabric called Vintage Modern. And here is the key Team Teal fabric I have chosen for us all................
The next thing I know, I am being given 4 fat quarters from other fabrics in the range because the owner feels our project is so wonderful So I now also have these 3 fabrics we can utilise as well...............
What's more, we can buy other fabric if we wish for our project at a discounted rate! So a HUGE thank you to the girls at Millie Moon.
One of the ladies joining the project is Fiona from Staring at the sea and she reminded me in her email about a number of blog posts she wrote earlier this year about her new found passion for quilting. If you would like a read and to get some ideas on what you could do then here is the link to all her quilting posts. And I have also made a Pinterest board here
Finally for today here is a conversation Deb and I had on facebook last night.............
Deb: What a lovely idea, Jo, and so wonderful for me to read as we travel back home today. Of course I would love to be involved! Thanks so much for your continued support and ongoing efforts to spread awareness of ovarian cancer. xo
Me: What were Marti's fave colours and then I could give those as ideas to peeps? xxx Safe trip home
Deb: She loved blue and yellow together. Also loved strawberries and daisies. Once I'm home I will share your post with my friends and family as well.
So a few more ideas to help with choices of colour and images. Hope to hear from you soon and thank you again for your interest in Marti's quilt. xxx
