Fabric, Fabric, and more fabric

Well, I went to Fabricville this morning to look for fabric to make a baby carrier/sling for Patience. Special fabric that stretches across the grain and is stable on the grain was required. I was lucky, I this blue fabric on sale for $4.00 per m. Patience likes it so I'll make that next month when she's here. I bought a pattern off ebay for the sling.

I also came across some seersucker and washable silk to make sundresses for Jessica, Emily, Caitlin and Grace. I'll make Mitchell a pair of PJ's too. I got 7 different pieces of 2 meters each (but healthy cuts!!). They are blue, turquiose, pink, purples. The lower picture is a picture of pink sundresses I made them last year.

I also started another Burgoyne Surround quilt today. I decided that the background fabric was too thin on the other one I did for St. Dunstans. It was a hard decision to call, but now that I've started, I'm glad I did. And I have the 12 white base blocks cut for Baby Aurora's French Rose quilt. So I have my work cut out for me this week.

You are sure keeping busy. I am worn out just reading your blog. I love the fabric for the sling. I think it will be cool.
