That says, "mmm! quilts 'hearts' Pink Doxies."
Sandra from mmm! Quilts a.k.a. Musings of a Menopausal Melon and I hosted a blog hop a few weeks ago. We had a wonderful group of bloggers work with us, and we found how well we worked as a team. I think she'll agree, our friendship was cemented. As we were sending thank you's off to our bloggers, this arrived in my mailbox from Sandra. Isn't it beautiful? I shot a few pictures before I put it to good use. Yes, I use my beautiful things. Do you?
Thank you, Sandra.
She had been on a mission buying darling fabrics, and one was this by Aneela Hoey. I was out of town, but she would send me fabric texts, and we ooed and aahed together. She made sure there was some extra for me, and it's one I know I'll have a hard time cutting in to.
Lil Red by Moda
Perhaps she put me in mind of cute prints because when I saw this bolt of new fabric in my LQS, I snapped up a yard without hesitation. This is seriously sweet stuff!
Rarely do I pay full price for any fabric. Sorry, folks, I'm just as happy with last year's prints unless it's really special. These two above were $6 and $7 a yard...
... and these all $6. I hunt through the flat folds, and
most of the time find quality buys. Moda, Art Gallery, R.Kauffman, etc.
I look at this kind of buying in different ways.
~I shop out of my normal preference because I might not have chosen the fabric if it wasn't on sale, and this gives me a wider variety in my stash.
Do You Cut Your Fabric Deck?
Everything is washed, dried, ironed, and ready to go into my stash. Each time I add fabric to the stacks, I cut the decks like cards. It keeps the fabric moving around, and I see things that might not have been on my mind lately. Just keeping things fresh, and getting new ideas.
