fabulous quarters

I picked these up the other day. I plan on doing 2 bespoke quilts for my sons. I have one in mind for my elder one (a Denis Schmidt pattern from her book) and I'm not sure of a design yet for my younger son. I want something that will last! So no Thomas the Tank Engine fabrics etc!

I saw these fabrics, and I liked the fact that they weren't all pink and flowery. They would definitely fit in with a boy's quilt. It is a Robert Kaufman, called Metro Retro! I believe. EDIT: No it's Groovy Bars in Spring by Caleb Gray for Robert Kaufman!

I do like this yellow fabric, it's Robert Kaufman, again.

And I love this geometric on the dark brown. This may well go towards my elder son's quilt! I got them all from Quilty Pleasures, my local independent shop. Liz the lady who runs it is great. She told me they are relaunching their website, with an online shop at the end of this month. So do take a look!
