After all of the FMQ last week my left shoulder is acting up.
My Janome sewing machine is placed on top of the table instead of lowered into the table. The whole set up is not very ergonomic when sewing for hours and hours… I know now. 😦 I think I will have to take it easy with the FMQ for a while. Also, school will start this Monday and I need most of my free time to prepare for my classes. About two-thirds of my classes are theoretical and not practical. So, lots of preparation needed for art history and art appreciation. For the month of September I will be taking it slow with sewing. I do hope to post once a week, though!
To get over the gloominess of this so-called summer I got myself a rainbow of fabrics… Any other reasons needed to buy fabric?
All of these are by Andover Fabrics, Color Collection plus one piece of Itsy Bitsy (stars). I ordered from an online Dutch shop called Stitchenzo who had these on sale for 11 euros per meter. Regarding quilt fabrics this is really cheap as quilt fabric normally sells for 16-20 euros per meter.
These next three I ordered also from the same shop.
1. Jungle Dots – C3163 gray
2. Panduro Fabric, Stina 304418
3. Panduro Fabric, Rut Dark Red 304427
Besides lots of yards of Kona Solids, also a mystery box of FQ arrived from Craftsy. I SOOOO took advantage of the huge sale a few weeks ago! Here is what was in that mystery box:
I have tried to find the name of these, but no luck yet! The gold and pink dots = Heirloom
9 Different pieces of Chicopee.
Starting at the fish fabric, clockwise:
2. + 3. Get together
4. + 5. Designer Rhinestones
All of the others unknown. I looked through all of the Freespirit collections online, but must have missed these.
7 Different FQ of Tailored.
2. Bohemian, AT67Pink
4. + 5. Wildflower
I had some fun mixing all of my new fabrics! They go so well together!
Lots of great quilt project ideas, but for now I will have to be content with playing with the FQ! 🙂
Have wonderful Sunday!
