You know that it's going to be a good package when the fabrics inspire you even in slices...
On first glance I thought, "I'd love to quilt that!"
Yes, I've done some fabric shopping! This is my order from Fabric Bubb. My heart was set on those Alison Glass feathers! From left that's: Ta Dot Emerald, Domino Dot Water, Feathers in Ocean, Feathers in Teal, Feathers in Lime, Feathers in Dahlia, Leaves in White.
From Sew Love Fabrics, I reordered a whole yard of Social Climber in gold. I love, love, love, LOVE that fabric. But I never buy anything in bigger than 1 yard cuts, unless for a particular project. I think every other fabric I bought I opted for 1/2 yard cuts? That's my go-to size for stash building. From bottom: Social Climber Gold, Momo Dot Blossom, Ticking Stripes Pink, Mind's Eye Toast, Dotted Leaf, Pressed Field Peony.
From Fresh Modern Fabrics I finally took home those Comma Periods in black and added a bunch of helpful fabrics to my stash. From left: Posy Stripe Lily, Ditsy Hollyhock, Leonard Pastel, Posy Story Foxglove, Architextures Crosshatch Peach, Ta Dot Petal, Comma Periods Black.
Did you notice a theme? PINK. I needed them since I'm supposed to be cooking up a pink and red quilt for Aria's bed. Pink is one of those colors (like blue) that has a myriad of different incarnations. I'm not sure exactly which "pink" I'm going for, but my stash was sorely lacking in this hue overall, so buy I did!
And this little arrangement nearly echos the colors I requested for the go Anywhere Stripes quilt. Funny how that happens!
Since these goodies arrived, I started a small paper pieced project for the Penny Sampler class. Used up all those Comma Periods already. Oops! This Inkwell Life's Words print is one of my favorites, but is pretty hard to find. Just noticed a sort of similar print that's just come out. That's the nice thing about fabric these days - there's always something new and lovely to discover!
