New Fabric

I am so happy Australia Post dropped these fabrics off at my house today:


These were ordered online at Tennessee Quilts.

From top to bottom the fabrics are:
Brandon Mably - Tents - Yellow and Blue
Robert Kaufman - Mingle - Blossom, Summer
Robert Kaufman - Metro Market - Canary, Spring and Red
Kaffe Fassett - Paperweight (Pastel), Peony (Red), Paperweight (Lime) and Roman Glass (Pink).

The Kaffe Fassett fabrics are all re-orders as my stash was running dangerously low on these favorites. The others are all new additions. I usually purchase 1/2 yard cuts of fabrics that I like, sometimes I will buy 3/4 yards or 1 yard when I know a fabric would be great for binding, or if really love it.

I have also basted the purple quilt I have been working on.


I am going to quilt it today.

Hope you too have a great sewing day!

  20. I keep trying to leave a comment on your give away post but for some reason when I go into that post, I only see half the comment box =0(

    Which works out ok when typing a comment, but when it comes to the secret word, I can only see the first letter.

    I am bummed because I love your prize and I figure that, even though my chance of actually winning it are pretty well non-existent, it is 100% sure I won't win if I don't enter...which I apparently can't *Sigh*

    Love your blog though and have added it to my list of blogs to check on frequently.
