As you know I'm relatively new to quilting, and to buying fabric on line. Although I've bought bits here and there (Bits? I hear my husband crying) I've yet to make a serious purchase. You know, a grown up purchase, a full FQ set of one design. Until now. Today, after 3 1/2 weeks waiting, this little baby arrived all the way from America
A full set of Hope Valley. Oh my word, it is wonderful. I've had a few FQ's before but put them all together, side by side, and it is beyond belief! I can't make my mind up which ones I like best
She's not a girl to mess about making decisions (unlike me) so there and then she decided this is the quilt she wants, in this fabric. So I have the full authority to spend someone else's money to buy a full set of Hope Valley to make a quilt I wanted to make anyway - I thought I'd died and gone to heaven!! And she wants it as a summer quilt, so I have all winter to make it. And you never know, there may be a bit left over for me!
The only drawback is, in buying it from America, it was pulled out by customs, and I had to pay around £20 duty and clearance charges. That's a bit of a bummer, but it made it around the same price as buying it on-line in the UK, if you could get hold of it, which you can't.
Also in the same parcel was 2 metres of this beautiful fabric
