I recently donated a Quilt to our local Project Linus and linked it up with the 100 Quilts for Kids Charity Drive run by Katie at Swim, Bike, Quilt. Low and behold, I won a giveaway!
Pink Chalk Fabrics was one of many who generously donated to the cause - to entice quilter's like myself (who thrive on the opportunity to
I tend to read an entire menu before making the 'right' selection, and they do have an amazing menu!
In the end, true to my frugal-self, I shopped in their SALE section, and look how far I was able to make the $20 stretch:
Although I have seen Road 15 all over the place, I never noticed the Las Vegas Blvd part, so I picked up the charm pack with no intent in mind. And I always love my geometrics, so I picked up a few from the Parson Gray Tour line.
The one I was most excited about is that green, my favorite color. I find I am actually picky about greens, and I don't have much in my stash. This stood out to me, a Kokka import called Folk Modern Medallion, by Ellen Luckett Baker - it is a cotton/linen blend. I have never purchased linen for quilting, and since this print was love at first sight, I ordered 1/2 yd to complete my order. But then it arrived in the post, and I touched it, of course, and I was surprised to find that it is the weight of home-dec fabric. OH NO! Had I overlooked this detail when purchasing? Back at the website, I see no mention of its' weight on the listing....
Hmm, This can't be what I am seeing quilter's use??
Regardless, I do love it. I have no idea what I'll do with it, especially since it is only 18", but I will find it's purpose:-) Perhaps a bag with some blue denim?
Also added to my stash this week is an Ebay score! I do not usually buy fabric on Ebay, but this irresistible lot of 8yds totaled $25, incl shipping(!).
|Lovin the Aqua's! That Buttercream has been added to fabric held for a quilt for Mom!|
I could not resist shopping around toward the end of day, and did I ever score! (prepare yourself for serious fabric envy!!)
Some of these will be listed in my new Etsy shop, RedLetterFabrics, and one may become part of an upcoming giveaway (which one would you choose?). For now, I just enjoy admiring them and contemplating how they may work with my own stash. I think the Cosmo layer cake will stay in my own stash though! YUM!
I thought I was done buying fabric, but after packing up at the end of the day, I discovered Quiltique had an irresistible sidewalk sale of their own, and picked up these FQ's for $1 each:
