|I seem to have a new love affair with Moda's Grunge after buying two pieces of it for nephew #2, Aidan's quilt, Triangle Tranpsarency.|
|Laid it down in the spot where her cushion went last year...immediate approval|
Speaking of animals and grey, just look at this masterpiece that was at the show! The guild had a challenge to use only grey as the background fabric in a quilt. This took first place. It was about 20" high.
There are even elephants quilted into the fabric here and there, eyes from a Sarasota designer and artificial eyelashes that a human would wear.
How's this for threadplay?! Eric Drexler's work was the Special Exhibit. He uses Sulky threads, so I was pretty interested to see his work. Oh my! (that's his thread-painted dragon hanging up)
|A Recycled Challenge. Eric used 25-year-old Sulky thread...makes me smile, as I have some that is close to 15 years old and still stitches out beautifully.|
When I got home, the mail lady had delivered a package from Craftsy!
|Of course she has to investigate and approve all new fabric|
|20 strips @ 6" = 120" works out to CA$10.07 or US$6.77 per yard; that's a good buy no matter which way you slice it!|

Some sweet opportunities for sure!

Linking up with Molli Sparkles... who is stateside, so Sunday Stash is at Ms Midge.
