Time for a little octopus…

I’ve only got enough wadding for one quilt at the moment and that will be the pancakes quilt when I baste it on the weekend on the big floor. I’ve therefore put the dress on pause just briefly (while I get over the bit of panic that I am actually making this) before getting some more wadding. I’m thinking I may get something super light, like fusible fleece. Actually yes, does anyone know where I can buy that pretty cheaply by the yard/metre?

 I’ve started another project on my list – the Octo quilt – which as a result meant great fun cutting out 3 1/2″ squares in front of the TV last night, catching up with GB Sewing Bee. These go in the centre of the block and the quilt is going to be for the family in Calgary that we are staying with later in the year. I’ve decided to make a feature out of this fun Cotton+Steel octopus print in a few locations in the quilt, maybe one square per row.

    Nice colours! Not neccessarily cheap but stitch craft create had some at 9 a metre but it was lovely quality from memory.

    I’ve not come across anywhere cheap for fusible fleece, especially factoring in postage – will it be a bit bulky in the dress?

    That’s going to be fun! Hope you manage to get some fleece. I *thought* I bought it from my local fabric shop, but they don’t think I did!!!

    Does he have a name? Otto? Oscar?

    Erm, I might be able to help with the fusible fleece, but possibly not in time for this project
