Not much is as exciting as a beautiful stack of fabric...for a quilter! I mean, really! Maybe two stacks, but I'll take this and not complain one little bit!
The color of this first bundle grabbed my attention. Peachy-orange. A dessert, really. Scrumptious! Mini Pearl Bracelets, Art Gallery...a feast for your eyes!
Awwww...yes. Cotton + Steel. The pink made me take notice, along with grey and black. I find it very intriguing.
When I saw that Pink Door Fabrics was having a sale on Instagram, I jumped! There use to be so many great finds and deals on Instagram (#thegreatfabricdestash) for fabric. As of late, I really haven't seen much. While you can find good stuff, you really have to be there at the exact right moment. Has anyone else noticed that?
This next batch of goodies comes from Fort Worth Fabric Studio. I put in my request for fabric for a tutorial I'll be doing in February, and thought I may as well grab a couple things while I was looking!
I was in need of more insul~bright and also happened to see a remnant of Kona Pepper on sale. Usually I go with Kona black, until recently when I thought I would try Kona Pepper. I think it will be a great alternative.
I love a good shot cotton. The warp and weft of two different fibers gives shot cottons amazing dimension. When I say this bundle on sale I thought it was a good time to test out Moda's Cross Weave Wovens. The colors are beautiful, they feel wonderful and are thick almost like Peppered Cottons. I'm excited to see them in a quilt!
For pure fun, (I'm living on the edge here!) I had to have a magnetic pincushion. I have never had the pleasure of such a luxury, so sheltered!
But really what I'm most excited about are the zippers. Lace zippers. In December I made a massive stack of Clear Vinyl WIP Bags. It didn't take long before I was obsessed with making them. While I was happy with the pattern (from Amanda Jean @ Crazy Mom Quilts), there were a couple things I wasn't happy with. Ideas were swirling around in this pea brain of mine, and I may have a better way for me...do make more! Stay tuned. You know I'll blog about it!
That, my dears is all I have! Except for yardage, I'm done plumping my stash! This girl has to get to quilting!
I feel a little behind when it comes to my fabric choices. You know, yesterdays news! What new line is coming that you are frothing at the mouth for?
