As previously mentioned, last weekend I jaunted off to Vancouver to take in the Vancouver MQG showcase of modern quilts. It was my first all-modern quilt show and I won’t soon forget it. I love modern quilts so much. I took a picture of pretty much every single quilt and a few backs too.
And I went the fabric store without kids! I went with a list so that I wouldn’t buy indiscriminately but I still had fun. What’s not to love about name brand fabrics at 6$-15$/m? Anna Maria Horner at 6$/m. WOW. I could have shopped for days…but I reined it in at 2 hours and 20 dollars. Here’s what that looks like.
Backing for THIS quilt.
It was tough to decide on this but the yellows match perfectly. And I had to pick something.
I saw this on Dressew’s instagram feed a while ago.
I really hope it will match this fabric:
Need to actually check but even if it doesn’t match I have a metre of cool stripes for 6$.
And some of this but only a little.
Low cost fabric is wonderful and everything but boy do I hate ripped fabric. Look at the pulls!
Then down to the basement to see if there were any treasures in the remnants bin:
Yes there were. Sparkly treasures to boot!
