i struck lucky at a local fabric shop. it mostly stocks decor fabrics so i rarely venture in, but it does have a well stocked end of lines clearance section. i picked up a couple of these sample books for discontinued ranges. i wouldn’t have known what to do with them before i started thinking about quilting, but now i couldn’t resist. i also picked up a couple of curtain samples for 50p each
they remind me of this amy butler fabric, and i really like the colourway, it’s fresh and very different from my usual inclinations.
