When I first decided to attend Quilt Canada in June, I wasn’t thinking about the shopping possibilities. But they were great! I tried to restrain myself by deciding to focus on fabrics which I could use for quilt backgrounds, since up to this point I haven’t stockpiled many large solid or near-solid cuts in my stash. And Len’s Mill Store had the Free Spirit designer solids for $7.69 / metre (plus tax), so although it was hard to decide, 4 m each of the grey and dark blue followed me home.
Then Sew Sisters had little fat quarter sushi rolls for $1 each! So I had to buy three. Plus I can never have enough purple fabric, so another purple from A Stitch in Time was added to the pile.
Speaking of A Stitch in Time, they always seems to have good prices at these shows, so I found a few one metre cuts that appealed to me (yes, that does say $7.99 / metre. Generally quilt shop fabric runs $12-$16 / metre.) Clockwise from top left they are an unknown batik, Chatterbox from Honor Roll by Anna Maria Horner, Mind’s Eye from Field Study by Anna Maria Horner, and La Scala by StudioRK for Robert Kaufman.
And at my very first stop, Fabric Spot also had some good prices on fabric, so I snatched up a couple of purple selections from the sale rack. Karen, the owner, asked me if I was back already and I said, but I just got here? Then I realized that maybe she had recognized me from my instagram picture, and sure enough, we figured out that she had. Hi Karen!
