Fabric score

Last week I had to stop into Fabric Depot to JUST GRAB ONE THING....oops.
I didn't know where that breast cancer awareness fabric would be so I wandered around a bit.
That led me towards the back of the store where I saw some doors leading outside.  I subscribe to their newsletter and remembered reading something about an Outdoor sale.  

Just one quick peek I said to myself.  That peek looked like this and my jaw dropped.

Holy smokes!  So much fun fabric.  And the prices were right up my alley. I can't believe that I restrained myself so well.  Fabric sales and me have a very delicate relationship.  They scream at me that they'll leave if I don't buy all that my wallet can handle.  I settled on a couple of pieces that really caught my eye and resolved to come back another day.  This thing will last all summer!  Woohoo!

My score for the day.
Bottom to top: 
Fusion Garden Circles in Steel - Robert Kaufman
Cascade Collection - Glisten in Deep Sea & Mauve by Jessica Levitt - Windham Fabrics
Fabric Traditions  2011 (that's all it says, and I can't find it anywhere online)
Governor's Palace - Windham Fabrics

This was my first time trying to label the fabric I am showing.  I feel like am pretty close to failing.  I am having a hard time determining how to describe the fabric so that others could find it if they like it as well as giving credit to the designers, etc.  If anyone has tips on how to do this, please let me know. :)

Do you ever come across a piece that just calls to you? Maybe it is outside your usual tastes, but something about it just makes your heart go pitter-patter.  This pretty little floral stripe did that for me.  I don't know what I will do with it, but I knew that I just had to have it.  It reminds me of a sleepy, cozy weekend at grandma's house.  That is the only way I can describe it.  Maybe I'll make some pj's from it, or pillowcases.   How would you use this?

There were a couple of other colors that went with these squares, but I limited myself to the ones that I just couldn't do without.

Now if I can only bring myself to cut into it instead of just fondling it every day...

  1. I saw some of a floral stripe like your, or similar, at hancocks yesterday. I thought it would be cute as a nightgown. I had limited funds, but I thought a nightgown for me, and one for both granddaughters.

  2. Yes it would make a great nightgown. Sales are hard to resist aren't they. My local quilt shop has its sale on Saturday...oh oh.

  3. Wow, Fabric Depot looks amazing! Love those geometrics!

  4. Those squares are pretty interesting, I must say. I understand what you mean about sales - it's best when I avoid them altogether...

  5. Oh you MUST cut into it! What a wonderful find I wish I could find something similar over here in the UK ..... I really like the cascade collection.

  6. So many wonderful goodies! I specially like the leaves ones. Have fun!


  7. Oh my, great purchases! I like them all!
