Fabric Hunting

After making the baby quilt, I had almost no pink fabric left, so I went fabric hunting in charity shops. I look for good quality, 100% cotton fabric, which will wash, wear and iron well. It can be difficult to find as a lot of clothes are now made of synthetic or mixed fibres.

This week, I came home with a good collection. I found three cotton men’s shirts, with lots of fabric in them, for under £5 each. They are all slightly different pinks and slightly different weaves, so that will be useful for creating interest in quilts.
