Fabulous Fabric Find

Back to some textile activity...
I went to the Caloundra Quilters Show today and really enjoyed it. Some really talented people and great quilts and some wonderfully inspiring materials. I picked up this beautiful fabric and this cotton lace. I am really looking forward to creating a piece to add to the range I am taking to a new store on Tuesday, looking forward to it.

This fabric comes from and awesome range of Australian fabrics I have just come accross - (great I have been looking for some Australian fabrics not sure hwere its made yet - will look in to that) . This piece is called Spinifex the artist is Marie Elena Ellis. The range comes from M&S Textiles Australia , they specialise in Aboriginal fabrics. Check out their website http://www.mstexaustralia.com/index.shtml to see their beautiful and evoking range - wow inspiring...I am excited to make a range of wares in these beautiful fabrics...paying homeage to Aboriginal heritage. Here are some others in their range - its like walking through an art gallery : - ) . If you try some out - send me a post I would love to see what you come up with...Hope you like the link.
