I vaguely remember making some grand proclamation about not buying fabric. Yeah right. Like that’s ever going to happen. Especially when there are sales! I have reined it in a bit – not quite as many fabric benders of late.
Today’s post is a bit of a twofer! Because I’m including free fabric. Oh yes, free! I was lucky enough to have my custom bundle picked in the Squeeze Your Own Bundle competition at Blossom Heart Quilts. Big thank you to Randi from Fresh Squeezed Fabrics for this lovely prize!
I just adore that Simple Life print – how sweet is the little girl hanging out the washing?! Love!
Then I took advantage of one of the Black Friday (or is Black Monday? I get so confused) sales after Thanksgiving. Fabric Shack had 10% off everything, plus with their discounted international shipping, well… how’s a girl to say no?!
Especially when they had pretty much all the Color Weave (P & B Textiles) colours. I limited myself to 12 colours. These will be perfect for texture in paper piecing!
They are a bit darker than my all time fave Sketch fabrics, but I think they’ll still work just fine!
Of course whenever I place an order from a US shop, have to make the most of the postage and get the whole 9 yards. Literally. So here’s what I added:
I know that looks like a lot of fabric, but altogether that’s only two parcels of fabric! And some of those are 1/4 yard cuts and I couldn’t resist and I wanted them for ages and they are too pretty to resist and… and… too much justification? I like fabric. Let’s leave it at that.
Oh and to help me with matching solids… I bought a Kona Color Card!
Aussies and Kiwis – get excited. Kate Quilts (Aussie gal) is stocking these, and at the same price as you’d pay in a US shop. But being “local” (as in our part of the world) postage is MUCH less! Woohoo!! Oh and it includes the new colours! I know right? The excitement is too much!
So let’s leave it there and check out what everyone else is adding to their stash this week!
