Yesterday, we made the 3 hr 15 minute drive to Fredericton for a doctor's appointment. The quilt shop that was there is now closed, so I could only shop at Fabricville. I don't have a membership card because I only get there about once a year. They've changed their policy and most of the sales and specials only apply to those with a card. And wow, fabric prices have gone up! I bought a couple of pieces that I need now and I think I'll order the rest online. Even with shipping, it's cheaper.
Here is the white cotton with my stencilled and spritzed snowflakes all finished.
I picked up a couple of batik pieces that I thought would match and I've added a piece of royal blue cotton velvet that I've used discharge paste on.
It was a bit fiddly with the paper; I applied the paste with a sponge brush and then pressed wax paper over it once on the velvet so that I could rub it. I had no idea if it would work until I ironed it. The snowflakes are even clearer and brighter than I expected or wanted but it will work fine with some machine quilting.
The plan is to piece and quilt a table runner with the different fabrics. I can't wait to put it together but it will have to wait until tomorrow.
I'm off to the library to tutor an adult student from the upgrading class where I used to teach.
