At lunch today I went to a local quilt shop. It's one I haven't been to before, which for a Perth resident, is pretty rare. We have a very small community of quilt shops here in this state so if you're a quilter word travels fast when there's new shop to be explored. This 'new' shop called Southlands Fabric & Sewing Centre (29 Yampi Way, Willetton WA) is actually a reincarnated previous quilt shop that has changed hands and location. So really, it's a new shop and unbelievably I hadn't visited it yet. So at lunch today I rectified that.
I went in with a purpose in mind. I want to start a new hand piecing project as I've finished my last one and have only one other on the go that I call my '10 year project' so really there's no end in sight for that one. I wanted to begin another hand pieced quilt and finally chose the pattern - All Hands Around. It's pictured below from a Google search.

I came away from this lovely shop poorer in pocket but richer in textiles. This is what I bought:

So, there you have it. Just one more quilt shop to add to my growing list of places where I deposit my hard earned money. At least I'm supporting the local community. I admit I'm a quilt shop whore.....
