Allowed purchases- my new favourite pattern

Still on the fabric diet, don’t worry, however I’ve had to buy a couple of spools of Aurifil. I also came across the February issue of American Patchwork & Quilting and had to buy the digital copy (not a fan of the Zinio interface as I want to print it or at least save to PDF for reference but computer says no). This is because of the quilt on the front, how amazing would it be to make a multicoloured, scrappy one of these? And I don’t even “do” other people’s patterns anymore, though things are about to change I feel. Once I have a couple of finishes under my belt of course.

Two projects have gone off for publication this week and I have another two to go out to a different magazine at the start of next week so I am working hard on paying off this wedding. Oh and I am in the current (and honestly really lovely and contemporary) issue of Popular Patchwork (see bottom left of cover) and I’m in the next issue of Quilty too.

Anyone know of any current deals on buying a bolt of wadding anywhere?

    Congratulations on the magazine articles! The only one I can think of is Lady Sew and Sew they usually have bolt deals. xx

    Love your Liberty Mandela – it’s gorgeous! Well done on all the publications :) Like Sarah, the only one I can think of is Lady Sew & Sew, I think Katy (I’m a ginger monkey) recommended the Sew Simple Eco Blend which is slightly cheaper and is apparently very similar to the Simply Cotton blend. Here it is x

    Well done on your publications. As for bolts of fabric then Trudi would be a good person to talk to. Di x

    Lady Sew And Sew often have deals. Asding do 20% off on whole bolts (which is where Trudi gets hers), but they actually have to have a whole bolt in stock – I’ve been waiting over 15 months for them to get back to me on the one I was after…

    Go you! Well done on the publications. Love that American Patchwork magazine although… I see the star as one lovely EPP project!

    Going to repeat others lady sew and sew has offers and I’m sure I saw something on bolts on their fb page recently.

    What they all said about Lady Sew & Sew (not that we are in the same Bee and they are a wonderful sponsor or anything!!!).
    Congrats on all the publications xxx

    Hi I’ve only just found your site and read this query. Ibuy my bolts of wadding at Doughtys and their Cloud wadding is much cheaper. Phone them if you can’t find the Cloud bolts as they seem to be in the process of changing things round on the website, Kind Regards, Ann
