Last week I visited the ‘Stoffenspektakel’ in Rijswijk (Holland). A big fair with a lot of all kinds of fabrics. We where mostly looking for fabrics because I recently fell in love with quilting!

The idea to make a quilt came about mainly because I have received a ‘new’ sewing machine. I did have a very cheap sewing machine somewhere, but it’s just not working properly. Now I got a beauty of a machine from my parents neighbor and I love it!

It’s a very old (and heavy) machine, but it works perfectly! It is a Lewenstein Astra-matic super. And look what a beautifull red cover it came with! So that’s the reason behind my fabric hunt, and I think I did a good job ;)

For a blue quilt, would be lovely as a present for a baby boy.

And some happy colors to sew stuffed animals!

 

Just looking at the fabrics makes me very happy :) doesn’t it make you happy? So that’s the start of my fabric collection.

Have a lovely weekend!
