You don't think I need to put on this creativity patch to get the juices flowing with all this fabric, do you?
I had the hardest time with my brain and trying to buy so much fabric. I finally went through the store, putting fabric in my cart for each specific project. That's more or less how I have them organized on this page, too.
Now, remember this all took me three days, and the fabric was in a jumble everywhere! It was on the floor, on tables on bolts, on tables in flat folds, on the wall in bins, under the table in bins, in shopping carts and under patterns, too! They were re-setting the store, but I think maybe they were always in disarray. It just made the hunt all that much more fun!
The fabric on the left is 5 yards each of Marsha McCloskey's Staples on top and Ambrosia by P&B Textiles. The one on the right is 3 yards of Print Concepts, It's a Cat's World After All (I have no idea why!).
These are mostly, but not all, Mary Englebreits that were on the super duper reduced table. I think there's one that Finn just recently got, too - the yellow one?. These will be for my "kite" quilt like the one I saw being made in my Gwen Marston class last spring. It's on the bottom of this page called Pam's Controlled Spider Web.
Hubby really, really liked these two 5 yard cuts he found under a table on the last day of shopping. The yellow one had some sort of black streak running the length of the fabric, and we didn't see it until it was being measured. He sort of expressed how unhappy he would be about not getting this particular fabric because it was so happy. Sooooooo, they asked him if 99 cents a yard would be enough of a reduction. You can see it made it home, so way to go Hubby! These two are going to be used for gift quilts for 6 of the Sisters of Charity who work at the Clinic.
These fabrics are all between 3 and 5 yards and I am planning on making 9 lap quilts for Duschene Caritas Clinic Diabetic Education graduation (reward) quilts. They need to be completed by February.
These? These were some reproductions that I just liked, and I think they might be a nice addition to the Kite quilt, too.
Brights, and black and whites, and whites and blacks for the Beaver Island Gwen Marston retreat in September.
Now lest you think I broke the bank, here's the scoop. I purchased 80 yards for under $3.00 per yard! Made it all worthwhile, and besides I was able to use up about 12 hours of my Rochester time shopping for fabric! LOL!
