Retail Therapy

Oh, how good it feels to make a few fabric purchases! Once upon a time, I bought fabric with wild abandon. Now, I am much more deliberate in my purchases, having realized that I'd best be attacking the stash as opposed to increasing it.

I mentioned in the last post that I got to do a bit of shopping in Cincinnati and Waynesville last week. Let me show you what I bought.

I collaged the pictures; I guess I am getting lazy! This is just so much faster! Anyway, the top left is a stack of yardage all from the Lario line. This line has been on my radar since Sharon P. showed it to me a couple of months ago. I have absolutely no ideas about what this yardage will be used for,  so I will just stare at it for awhile.

The top right is from Sentiments, a line by 3 Sisters. In the back of my mind I have a red and white quilt formulating, and this just looked too luscious to pass up.

The 2 charm packs in the bottom left are by American Jane. I already have some yardage , not from this line, but from previous lines, and they will all work together. There are some wonderfully bright reds and blues in this line.

The two fat quarters in the bottom right photo are gray pieces from the Morris Apprentice line by Barbara Brackman. I have that whole line stashed away for that wonderful quilt - Tapestry - that Kelly had on display at Old Town Fabric Shop in Chillicothe. I figured a couple extra pieces might come in handy; and if I don't use it in that quilt, I could set these aside to use in the gray and yellow quilt I am planning to start soon.

The display at Old Town Fabrics.

My pattern and fabric, waiting and ready to start.
Better be getting busy, hadn't I?? Always so many projects, and yet I spend so much time dithering about what to start next. Gracious!

I think I will try to be productive today; how about you??

Happy Quilting, Friends!
