Australian fabric

Discovered another wonderful quilt shop yesterday in a near by town. There were several bolts of fabric I would have been happy to bring home..... but restrained myself as best I could. Here are some goodies I couldn't live without:
These fat quarters are from a line of Aboriginal inspired fabric from M&S Textiles from Australia, There were several more lush patterns and I know I'll be heading back to buy more once I figure out what I want to do with these.

Two "birdie" prints to add to my collection. I am a sucker for fabric printed with birds or text.

Since this past Monday, I have made 88+ of these bow tie blocks out of reproduction 30's fabric along with a few vintage fabrics from my stash. Have 6 rows sewn together out of a total of 8 ... will try to finish up the rest this weekend.
Thanks for visiting.

I look at all fabric and thought what amazing things people like you can do with it. I even began to think that I should learn something creative like that.

You do such beautiful work! I love to sew as well so I can appreciate the effort and love gone into your quilts. Kolya koala also loves the Australian Aboriginal inspired fabrics!
