I have wanted to visit Post Office Patchwork for a long time, and yesterday was the day. It didn't disappoint. Lots of lovely reproduction fabrics and excellent, friendly service. I was on my way to Sydney with Mr 15 for athletics so didn't have a lot of time. Still, it's amazing what you can do in 15 minutes!
Hmmmm...... the light isn't good for photos here in my "luxury suite" at the Formula One. Quite out of my comfort zone with grey, blue and black, but I think they will make a good quilt for my nephew. Don't ask about the Japanese Kofu roll I bought for that project at the Sydney craft show. Let's just say it's not happening.
Back to the shop....... I was served by the lovely Rhonda Pearce who made the Insanity quilt from 1/2" hexagons. The quilt was hanging on the wall - I didn't touch it in case I caught even more of the hexie bug. Stunning is an understatement. I got this pic from the APQ website.
I also saw the beginnings of Rhonda's Dear Jane. It is a project I have thought about starting since I bought the book a couple of years ago, but I always get stuck on what fabric to use. It was good to talk to someone who is just working on it as it comes, rather than planning out fabrics and colours for the whole quilt. Maybe........
On another shopping note, we went to the DFO at Homebush last night. Lots of great bargains, Mr 15 is kitted out for summer and I bought a complete set of beautiful Sheridan bed linen at 50% off - no bargains like that in Mudgee.
Have a great weekend.
