Last Wednesday was practically Christmas morning in our house, as the fabrics arrived even before I woke up.
So what all did I get? I shopped with some sense of purpose and with the plan to spend exactly $100 so I could get the most out of my shipping money. The first priority was fabrics for my niece but after that I have two projects in mind. My brother will be next on my list and he's asked for reds in his quilt, and there's a red-and-blue quilt featuring many, many flying geese percolating around my head for him. Then there's the Swoon I'm planning for Bunny and my bed eventually, featuring eggplant purples and greens.
|Excusing the mess in the background, I got all of this|
|For Flying Geese|
|these houses are my favourites|
|perfect colours, and from some of my favourite lines|
Then, because I figure I'll always have a use for them, I picked up some neutrals. Apparently I like black?
|such as V and Co (I really should have picked up the Ikat Diamonds in eggplant too)|
|and Sweetwater (I pretty much want the whole Road 15 collection)|
|The purples she chose ... and the wrong side of the turquoise I'd been using|
|for accent blocks. I love the damask and honeycomb prints.|
That's probably enough gratuitous fabric pictures for one day. I should have updates on the actual quilt top in the next week or so. I've definitely already cut into the purple solids and started playing.
