After my trip to the PNW, I came home and found a fabric order I had been waiting for as well as a surprise box from a quilting friend. She was cleaning out her stash and was kind enough to pass some along.
First, my finds while traveling. I visited a little store called Keepsake Cottage, which was just the cutest little store you've ever seen! Inside was wall-to-wall fabric; everything you could imagine! I wish I had a better list of what I was looking for because I am sure I could have found it here.
I already had Honey, Honey for a strippers club quilt I hope to start soon. I knew I wanted a little more of some of my favorite pieces, and took the opportunity. I also bought more of the Vintage Modern line as I prepare to do something with that. I might end up ordering some of that as well. I want to make some stars with it, so I need to get to work to see if I need more.
I ordered the Enchanted Garden collection from the Little Fabric Shop. Oh, this line is so beautiful, and totally different than ANYTHING I have gotten before. I struggle with orange, but this line incorporates it in a way that was irresistible! Can't wait to find a pattern for this great batch.
Finally, the wonderful box that showed up. So many options. Of course, I am going to jump right on the Dr. Seuss fat quarter set. I am already envisioning fussy-cutting the panel and using the fat quarters along with sashing to create a boxed look.
The Cat fabric is amazing and I think I am going to need some time to think about what pattern will work for it. As for the other cat fabric set in lime green, blue, and black; it's so different than anything I would normally select, and I am thinking it would make a perfect bag. For some reason, I love, love, love the line and feel like it's asking to be part of a bag. We'll see.
So many ideas and possibilities! Through all this, I have also been working on using up the scraps I had from my beach quilt. The scraps quilt might end up larger than the original quilt the fabric was purchased for. I have never been good at figuring out how much to get for a project. I think I am getting better, though.
Okay, very wordy, sorry. Any ideas you might have for the fabrics, feel free to drop them off in the comments! I know I need them :)
I am linking up with Freshly Pieced for WIP Wednesday. Thanks for stopping by!
