More fabric inspiration...

Filled with enthusiasm after starting my quilt (see the last post) I have found myself covering everything that sits still for long enough in fabric!

This time it was some notebooks.  I just used a very thin layer of PVA glue, spread on the book surface - and pretended the fabric was paper, and covered it as such.  I even made a natty pen pocket on one.  Not content I made a bag to put them all in ....

A very easy and cheap way to funkify something ordinary.  I covered my diary too!  Visit one of our Sussex shops and discover lots of lovely fabrics for small projects such as these.  You can buy as little as a .25m - just right for an A5 book.

Tis the weather for a nice quilt .....

I decided that it was high time I broke into my fabric stash and what better use of random fat quarters then to make a quilt. I've been thinking about it for a long time now but not quite got around to starting.

I used a very handy template and rotary cutter from the Cloth Store shop to cut all my squares - very simply and quick it was too.

I still have along way to go!

The Cloth Store has lots of useful quilting tools and accessories in the online shop as well as an every changing seasonal selection of fabrics in the two Sussex shops.  Online there is also some of the gorgeous Moda range of fabrics, some of which I have used in my quilt above.

New Fabrics for Autumn: 100% Cotton Twill

We have just taken delivery of these lovely 100% cotton twills.  At times like this I wish I didn't have three boys - this owl print would make the cutest pinafore ...

This one would also be lovely! Very seasonal too, with leaves and acorns.

Both of these, and some others, are not in the online shop and in our high street shops.  Remember, our fabric is seasonal, and, when it is gone, it is, just that - gone!
