brighten up.....

A quick weekend away recently..........I was hunting for a particular thread..........no luck with the thread but I did find these lovely fabrics............I've been thinking of a couple of photos in this post by @Me and My Quilts and I just can't get them out of my head..........I've wanted to make a bright quilt for a long time but those pics of her shelves just won't leave me so I have started my collection........
no idea what I will make yet BUT i have started the collection........
I had a quick trip away finding accommodation for Fairy Girl..........
While I hate the actual beach.....sand yuk....I do love the view..........
I prefer the bush better but it is nice to see.....
OK best go.......got a few quilts back from quilting but need to take some pics.....I started this post days ago and only getting to hit post now........
Life happens........
Hoping to get some bindings attached........one or two already prepared ages ago.........I need to get two quilts out the door ASAP.........
Stay Safe...........
Catch you later.........

  1. Such gorgeous fabrics and the beach looks very inviting... as you know sand doesn’t bother me.....
    And I enjoy the peace of the bush too!

  5. Beautiful bright fabrics for your collection. Hope you got Gairy girl settled in ok. I love the sand between my toes 😁 the bush is good in small doses for me. (I am a coastal person!!)

  6. Wow! Those cheery fabrics are so different to your previous fabrics you posted on the blog. I look forward to seeing how you use them. Lol, I live in a coastal area and hardly ever go to the beach in 30 years.

  7. Such vivid colors--in the Kaffe fabrics AND the ocean!
    I love playing in the sand at the beach. I just don't love that so much of it comes home with me.

  9. Oh how I love those fabrics! Just gorgeous. I love the sea but am not a beach person - winter beaches with crashing waves are my favourite. xx

  10. Have fun with your Kaffe fabric. Oh, to have shelves as neat and inspiring as Julie's. I hope Fairy Girls is all settled in now. I'm with you, the sea side is nice to visit occasionally, but I'm happy to head inland again.
