Figgy Pudding , I never gave up on You!!!


Have you ever fallen in love with something, and didn't follow your heart??? That's what happened to me last year ...fell in love with Figgy Pudding by Basic Grey for Moda. I also fell in love with the free pattern. I thought at the time, "Oh, I fall in love with lots of lines (mostly Moda), it will pass, and I really don't want to buy all that fabric for a "Christmas" Quilt!!!! I never fell "out " of love without it...so last week I decided to go ahead and try to find it. (Don't you just hate that all the fabric companies now make the lines for such a short time).So today my first  group of Figgy Pudding arrived from Alaska!!! Told ya I had to search everywhere!!! I also got my first copy of my Quilter's Connection, a totally Canadian Quilt Magazine! Life is good!!! I think the Early Bird Christmas Crafts program, has really got me into the spirit of Chrismas!!! I even got my Chrismas Journal made up!!!!And the sneaky little devil, Judith is following us pretty closely so I'd better post a picture of it!!! LOL

I don't know how close you are to Guelph but I just found Figgy Pudding at the Len's Mills store on Victoria Rd in Guelph, yesterday. $16.49 per yd ,or metre? i'm not sure which as they will measure either. It looked like they had the entire line altho' some bolts were a little thin. If you want more info email me.
