What better way to start the new year than a 50% off sale at one of my two favorite quilt stores.
Bought 4 yards of the red and 2 yards each of tan and brown in the top right corner. Came home and found several yards of the brown already in my stash . . .
Reyna drove down from Santa Barbara and we hit the doors about 3 minutes after the shop opened.I have some of these already. I bought the rest of both bolts since I know where I want to use them.
I was a moderate shopper (yeah, right) with only 9 bolts in my "cut" pile.
Too pretty to leave behind - no idea what I'll use it for.
Reyna outdid me with 11 (12?) bolts - and a plan for a future quilt. But her self-restraint was more evident; she limited herself to one yard cuts on most fabrics.
I don't normally buy toile, but this is gorgeous. Can't remember if I bought 3 or 4 yards.
I just went with what spoke to me - and I bought in quantity.
Bubbles! Backing for fabric that's in my stash. 3 yards of the blue and yellow; 2+ of the orange.
Are there any sweeter words in a fabric store than, "I'll take everything on that bolt"?
Another 1-yard cut that was too pretty to leave behind. Reindeer!
Most of what I purchased is destined for backing fabric. And 22 yards (at an average of $6/yard) should back a lot of quilts.
