I have been asked about my fabrics over and over, they are waiting in the cupboard for their star turn!!
These are the voile's and nets I have, I was quite surprised by just how many I do have, so if anyone can think of a QUILT I can make using these, even if its only a bit, I would be very grateful. They will NOT be used for dress making - been there done that!
I had a 'ripping' time today with these????

so, they went from this.....
to this, after a spurt from the ironthen I starting laying them out, cos I thought they were so pretty;

I may have duplicate the pictures, I lost track by playing with them. I can tell you there are in total...oh dear...66!

Then I turned round and saw my REAL pile of ironing. Ho hum! Not so pretty!

Oh well, the sooner I get this done the sooner I can sew.

Lovely voiles. But you call that a stack of ironing?

I'll show you a stack of ironing!

Photo up-dated to present me in more realistic (and plumper) light.
Taken last week when my daughter was here.
I like green - matches my personality!

Nice pile of voiles....I bet you come up with something wonderful to do with them.

Hi Babs,
Oh you didn't see the pile in the other room, I finished it all at 4.30, it seemed to take forever today. I really wanted to sew but was determined to finish that horrid ironing. Much prefer the fabric pressing. :-)
Green suits you too Babs.

Hi Noel,
I couldnt believe I had so many different ones. Got to make something with them. But what?? Help...
Absolutely I would press fabric forever. :-)

Noel, I forgot to say, I know EXACTLY what I'm going to do with this lot. Voile's that is!!!

Hi Jan,
It's here. The covered notebook has arrived. I just love it. Blue is my favorite color. Thank you so much. I can't wait to show this to the Quilters Group next week. I put a picture of it on my blog.

Thanks Phyllis for letting me know, appreciate that. Maybe they can all make one, instructions on blog for all to use. :-)
