Stashbusting Week 24

Well, what can I say? I can't believe this Stashbusting is so hard. After all my resolve I've broken down again. And I thought I was being so remarkably restrained at the Sydney Quilt Show. When the plane landed we caught a taxi straight to Patchwork Products. Well, for anyone who has been there you will know how hard it is not to buy something.....and she had a SALE on. Not that I let that influnce me. So, got a lovely border fabric and a background and a couple of other must haves. Like these reds.

Then there was the Sydney Quilt Show and all that lovely fabric. Must be going through my red stage (one of many colours) and just had to have these lovely antiquey ones.
Then there was this Black and Tan (my description) kit that I just couldn't resist. The colours are just wonderful.
And then these delicious browns. We all know you can't make reproduction quilts without the browns!
And how could I neglect my New York Beauty. Just had to get these beauties. Hmmm, I got some at last years show for this quilt. Perhaps I should pull all my fabrics that I have collected for this quilt and actuall see how much I have collected so far.................

So, I had a wonderful time and feel so inspired. And I need to be 'cos I managed to go in the opposite direction AGAIN.

I can't wait to see what you are going to make with all the beautiful fabric. I wouldn't be able to resist them either.

Hi Maggie, thanks so much for your link to the 3 column layout, it worked beautifully:)

Love those reds you have right at the top of this post! Your latest quilt is AMAZING! Do you have an ETSY site where you sell your beautiful creations?
