Fun in my fabric world....

My obsession....

...was to one day visit Material Obsession in Sydney. Yesterday we were in the big smoke to celebrate the life of my friend's mother, and Lea & I were able to visit MO on the way home. Yay!
What a great shop...Kathy & her girls were super friendly & we didn't know where to look. It was a true smorgasboard...delicious fabrics & SO much inspiration. 
Knowledge was shared & handy tips...oh why are they three hours away?????
Lollypop trees in all their glory!
Well, naturally I had to get something! 
A bit of this...
 
and some of that.
We were two very lucky girls!

I started on the Roseville Album quilt so that must be the Flower Garden quilt that Kim Mclean is doing in a class with Kaffe next year......ummmmm Im hoping Kim will be making a pattern and a kit for that one.

Looks like you both had a lot of fun.
