Fabric Shopping!

Today, my sister and I went shopping at a fabric warehouse. It's one of my favorite places to go shopping. It's also huge!! My sister was specifically shopping for twelve colors of batik fabrics for portions of a quilt she's designing. Just a quarter yard of each. While she was browsing the extensive selection of batiks, I was looking through the regular quilting fabrics. I showed remarkable self restraint and only purchased two yards of two different fabrics. The first is a dark green cotton quilting fabric with a printed swirl in a darker green. In the picture it is the one on the far left. The other three fabrics were purchased at JoAnn Fabric and Crafts.  This fabric is designated for a wedding quilt for a friend. I think I found a pattern for it too. I will have to make slight modifications to fit the color scheme, but I like it and think it will work.

The other fabric I purchased on a whim (I know, it's a bad habit. I really need to stop.) Anyway, it's really cool: 
My sister got everything she wanted, purchased eleven fabrics and pilfered one from my stash. I had planned on making a basic white blouse for work, but today turned out to be a color day. Oh, well.

Ta ta for now,


  1. Nice blog! Hope your crocheting sister makes the occasional guest post (I love crochet, you see).

    That tea script fabric looks lovely - I wouldn't have been able to resist it either!

  2. Thanks!

    I might be able to get her to pose with some of her work, but she's not one for online blogging...

    If you have any ideas on what to do with the fabric, I'll happily take suggestions, I have two yards.
