Fabric Find Saturday

We visited In Town Quilters this week to see all of the new colors and patterns on the bolts!

I had not been in the store for some time, and was excited to see the beautiful new patterns stocked. Pixie is starting her first quilt with mother hubbard (me) observing from afar. I have helped only with math and weight but left her to selections of color and patterns. This is deeply personal for her, and I know that quilting mistakes make for excellent teaching moments. She is going to do great!

The ladies are so helpful she spun circles around the store picking up more and more goodness. I was a little less impulsive because my stash is already insane.

I did get –

bewbs once again got the better of my fabric math brain and I lost my ability to think out yardage. Skirt it is ! Ok the more I look at this fabric. No, a dress is going to happen.

Riley Blake – Kitchen Cat Teal

Is only a 1/2 yard cut for quilting stash. It is everything I love about vintage colors design and my perfect happy place in color theory. Pinterest surfing the sewing blogs the other night I did see someone do the lemon version in one of Gertie’s designs. Absolutely adorable. Just not me for work wear.

Michael Miller – Bone Head in Gray

Ok so without realizing I am either getting in the mood for Halloween or I am creating a Day of the Dead quilt in my head.
