Do you understand how when you abstain from something for a really long time that when you finally get to have it again there is a primal need to go totallly CRAZY OVERBOARD? Well I have been avoiding purchasing fabric for a while. I've been trying to save money and I've been really good. But a girl can only go so long.... I had a few gift cards and I needed some motivation to work on my quilts so I just went nuts.
There is another picture of this below but I also had pictures of purples and pinks and neutral solids, but somehow they disappeared and I can't get them back. Close your eyes and picture a stack of popcicle colored fabrics. mmmmmmmm.......
I am really growing my novelty fabrics as you can see above. I have a dream that someday I will have a little boy and he will love science and I will make him a robot quilt.
I am thinking of using this (above) as the back for my cactus quilt.
These are just some lovelies I picked up. They will make nice cactus, cactuses, cacti.... what is the plural of cactus anyway?
I bought this one in three colorways. It was more than excessive.
Here again is my stack of solids. I promise you that is about a foot and a half tall sitting on my bedroom floor. Well, almost. It was going to be more glorious when I showed the the color groups as individual pictures and then the whole grand stack as another picture. I think I accidentally deleted them when I tried to move them around, which I apparently don't know how to do. I need my mom back from her retreat.
This is another fabric I bought in four colorways except I don't regret the excess one bit. I love them! Especially the green.
This is kind of a secret. I raided my mom's antique and vintage fabrics while I was helping her get ready for her retreat (and a little bit while she's been gone, sshhhhhhh). I kept shoving little squares in my pocket when she wasn't looking. Except sometimes she was looking. Don't you think these will make nice cactus too? Oh good, I'm glad you all agree with me.
I am at the end now and I think I am missing more pictures. Oh well, at least I know that my fabric isn't missing. I've been using the sewing room while Nanette is away and in between laying in bed with a fever and trying to finish some math homework, I have been working on my bento box quilt! I think I will have the top finished before she gets back. Maybe I'll even show it to you soon. I desperately need some help picking out a back. Thanks for reading, I know we're all looking forward to hearing how the quilting retreat went and can't wait for Nanette's far more organized postings return. --Natalie
