Next to my badge is my BadAss Quilters lanyard and pin -- nice and red and sassy! Feel so evil when I wear it! Ummm....not really evil, maybe just a little bit more daring -- like maybe I can put that fun skull with roses fabric into a quilt!
I was first introduced to Bosal fusible woven interfacing by Cindy Needham, one of the most amazing quilters I know. Cindy uses it to stabilize Radiance, a beautiful 50% silk 50% cotton fabric from Robert Kaufman. I've been to Cindy's retreats where she has had smaller pieces of this available, so I was happy to find it in larger cuts. I bought four packages of white and one of black.
Quilter's Dream Pink batting is an 80% cotton/20% poly blend. It has a really nice feel to it. They were giving out fat quarters, so I'll quilt up a sample piece and see how I like it. I have loved everything else I have ever used from Quilter's Dream, so I'm sure I'll like this, too!
This cool needle minder bat was a gift from Linda McGehee, owner of Ghee's, an online notion, pattern and sewing store. Linda travels a lot, teaching her purses, vests and other garments -- and always finds cool bat stuff for me! Love that -- thank you, Linda!
