The good news this week is I did get some sewing in. Unfortunately, I can't count a whole lot of it out because I didn't finish anything, but progress was made. I used some stash for the binding of a table runner, made more butterfly blocks, and did a little quilting on my Kaleidoscope.
The bad news, at least for the stash report it's bad, I bought some fabric. Well, a lot of fabric I guess. Every year Pam from Del Ray Fabrics has a tent sale in her backyard and she always invites the DC Modern Quilt Guild. Last year I didn't go because I was hugely pregnant and exhausted. This year I didn't want to miss it, and I'm glad I didn't!!
I had told myself when this line came out that I would have to pick a few prints that I really wanted, but I wasn't going to buy the whole line, way too expensive. As soon as I walked into the tent sale I saw this bundle, and decided to just see how much she wanted for it. It was marked down to more than 50% off of the cheapest price I had found online. Needless to say, I cradled it in my arms like a little baby the whole time I browsed. It was coming home with me! I also picked up a few fat quarters of Children at Play by Sarah Jane.
So cute! Perfect little boy fabric. Lucky me, I have two of them!
Thanks Pam! You made my day!
I really can't speak highly enough of Del Ray Fabrics. Not only does she have a great selection, but she is so incredibly generous. She donated a ton of beautiful fabrics to the 100 Quilts for Kids drive. If you are on the lookout for a new online fabric source, please look them up.
