Shopping for a Tova

This weekend I took the boys up to see a fabulous family friend, the lovely friend who I made the pixelated heart for.

I discovered that a quilt shop had opened. I am a fabric addict so obviously I need to visit all quilt shops I can find... right?

Well Angie's Quilts did not disappoint!

It is a lovely bright shop full of gorgeous fabrics, including all the new lines like Comma.

The space is well lit and there is plenty of fabrics, organised in colour order - which I love!

Angie is a lovely quilter, with loads of experience. She holds classes in the shop on fabulous tables.

Once I was there I cam across some gorgeous cotton cross weave fabric from Moda.

I bought a turquoise weave, which feels like linen, but shouldn't crease like linen. I matched it with a basic from Art Gallery Fabrics in a bright pink for the collar - it is going to look soooo pretty (I hope!)

I really enjoyed chatting with Angie and I will be visiting her shop again when I am next up that way.

I will keep you updated as to my progress! The mock top is looking lovely and alterations I made to pattern have worked too!

  1. The cross weaves are so beautiful and will be perfect for the Tova! Thanks so much for linking up this week.

    1. They are gorgeous! Can't wait to get sewing!

  2. Thanks for sharing, I think they might have had a stand at the Uttoxeter show over the weekend too as I saw an advert for Angie's in the guide book.

  3. She didn't have a stand, but you are right she did advertise on the back of the programme. Did you enjoy the show?

  4. Beautiful fabric! Looking forward to seeing your progress.

  5. Great fabric...can't wait to see more. Visiting from "Let's Get Acquainted."

  6. Love the fabric Anna. Angie's shop is a must for me whenever I visit Suz. Looking forward to seeing the finished Tova.
