My yearly trip to IKEA

I needed a bookcase to place all my quilting books so I ventured across Brisbane to the only IKEA store in SE Queensland. Prepared with a list, I ran through all the departments until I reached the warehouse and grabbed the 50kg double, glass door bookcase, four plastic basket inserts, a rubbish bin, light globes. a set of castors and some small storage boxes. In a moment of weakness I glanced across to the textile department and found these beautiful fabrics. They just had to come home with me.

  1. I've never really looked at the textiles at Ikea, but I always see others with some great finds! Might have to check it out some time. Sadly our only Ikea is on the other side of Melbourne.

  2. I had no idea IKEA had textiles! There is not one close to me, but I wonder if the U.S. Ikea's also have textiles. IF so, it is a new addition. I'll have to check. I love the fabrics. They are so contemporary.You should have a good time turning them into quilts!

  3. I love the fabrics at IKEA! I really want to get one of the large EXPEDIT bookcases for the craft room to put all my crafty stuff on rather than in a closet that will make everything damn near impossible to locate, but can't justify the purchase. Perhaps I could make little suggestions here and there until my other half declares what a great idea that bookcase would be. Hmmm... time to plot.

  4. Ikea's fabrics are great and such good value. I haven't been for awhile but I always have a great time when I get there. I've got an Ikea card so you get free cups of tea and I always have one of the yummy vegetarian breakfasts for about $2. I do love a bargain.
