Next time I must start with buying the key fabric. I started with buying what was on clearance and fit my concept and I realized that I still needed a specific leaf fabric, but now I needed it in a certain shade of green to make the color blend smoothly.
So after a frustrating trip two two fabric stores that claim to be the biggest in the nation I realized I was hunting for a fabric that didn't exist and bought 3 cuts that blended the colors and while neither was perfect all three together
For all the fellows quilter of the board who like hunt fabric in theirs trips!!
Here in Spain, quilting is not a traditional craft. Knitting, crocheting and embroidery are usual with strong traditional roots. Since 15 years ago the patchwork, as quilting is known here, is trendy. Shops, local and on-line, are settling but the notions and fabrics are expensive, imported.
There aren't a lot of shops in the diferente cities of Spain, in Madrid (3 million pop.) are only 6 or

I thought I would do some on-line shopping before Black Friday and get some more cotton thread for my collection. I just started using the cotton thread since I started quilting and my Bernina 1530 loves this brand of thread and I love my Bernina 1530, so it's all good. Until I started quilting I only had polyester thread in my collection and some of it is a little on the old side. Anyway, my favorite on-line retailer for thread was sold out of two of the shades of blue that I wanted, bummer.
