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.
