Calling all fabric-a-holics...
I need some moral support here.
I can't stop.
I now have 5...
....OKAY...10...ish (eek) quilt projects waiting for me. Thought of another couple this morning while getting ready. Like a true addict, I'm not even going to mention the apparel projects waiting in the wings. They don't count. They're (mostly) a totally different type of fabric, and thus should not be included in the group. Umm...yeah.
How do I stop?
I need to sit down and WORK on these projects before brainstorming and buying the material (literally) for more.
Here are my latest acquisitions, judge at your leisure:
A very thoughtful friend gave me a gift card to Jo-Ann's. I had to use it! This is from "Rosette" by Juliana Horner, daughter of well-loved designer Anna Maria of course! I love the other fabrics in the line, but this one made my heart go pitter-pat. It is also luxuriously soft and smooth (meaning that since it's quilting cotton it will probably wrinkle like the dickens!)
I'm thinking this dress (McCall's 6833 version D) for a lovely, fall-inspired frock.
I have been eyeing Rosette fabric for a while, but couldn't stomach the $12.99/yd price tag. Yikes! Well, in true Jo-Ann's fashion - a pattern sale, several coupons and a gift card later - the total out-of-pocket cost for this dress (including zipper, brown lining fabric, interfacing, thread, and pattern) will probably be ~$5.
Ha! Take that addiction!
I also made a dangerous stop at one of my fave local quilt shops (LQS in future) and picked up some goodies.
Has anyone else been in love with Technicolor since it was released? I have been web-stalking these beauties for a while now. Low and behold, my LQS had some hand-cut charm packs for only $6.00/ea, BUT they were having a 15% off all fabric sale to celebrate Halloween! They were only $5.10/ea. Hecks-to-the-yeah!
I'm thinking of designing a HST (half-square triangle) lap quilt in the near future with possible step-by-step tutorial if anyone is interested. :)
Last, but not least, I think I have a new favorite color.
It's the perfect deep navy blue. This picture does not do it justice.
I originally went looking for solid navy fabric to accompany my 2-for-1 Improv quilt (again, sorry...coming soon). It will be made of Modern Meadow, similar to my Yellow Brick Road quilt. I tried matching it up with Kona Navy, but it was weirdly too green.
Then I found Kona Storm.
I think it will also be the perfect neutral to accompany Technicolor. Don't you?
