I bought my first stack of cotton printed fabrics for quilting today! So far all my quilting has been done from scraps of fabrics I had collected over the years of making clothes for my kids and myself! Hence the first love is for crazy patchwork. Now I have 'graduated' and am keen to try other types of patch work....hence went out and bought some fabric. In this day of 'terry' fabrics, it wasn't easy to find cotton fabrics. I finally found a little shop in New Market and went mad seeing a whole range of wonderfully coloured prints. The dilemma is that I have a huge liking for the handlooms, and maybe one day when I have practiced enough, will attempt a quilt with them. I have been considering poplins as well, but I think they are a little thin. Lets see what I do with these!
