Fabric Friday and more Gifts

25 comments
It is Friday again. How does Friday keep coming around so quickly?
I have resisted the new fabric precuts for awhile thinking them not a fabulous value. But when I saw this 2 1/2" x 5" candy sampler I thought it was right for an impulse buy. I like all 4 lines of fabric but I rarely will buy a complete line of any fabric. Getting fabric this way was like having just a sweet taste. My favorite is Bliss, though, of course.
I actually have a few ideas for these specialty cuts. So I hope they won't just sit on my shelf.
I also managed a few new fat quarters. I have already had 4 of the 5 fat quarters and used them up. The fifth - the word print on the right - I have in another color and I like it so I acquired the neutral print when I saw it. I've already started cutting into several of these fat quarters.
Sherri is in town and we met with a few of the gals for lunch and a quick shop stop the other day. This hexie gift is from Sherri.
That Lori! She always sees potential in everything. When Lori saw these little bees on the shelf she thought "How cute! But they are naked." I would just think "How cute". She made aprons for them. So clever.
This is from RaeAnn. I actually cut into the orange and blue already. RaeAnn is so thoughtful. Look how cute this package is.

Thanks so much girls. My friends are great. It is so fun to meet up with them. I nearly didn't make it to see them yesterday, though. I was directly behind a one-car accident on the freeway as I was traveling north. Scary! I still haven't recovered yet from the terror. Gratefully I was able to stop in time.

I have lots to show next week. I've been actually sewing!

Annie's right! Glad it didn't become a two car accident! Great friends and great gifts. Love that candy bar pack! Clever. Will be fun to see what you have to show us next week. :-)

Great candy bars and lovely presents.
Have a wonderful weekend!

Lori Holt said...

Hi there girler!
You know I bought the same Moda candy bar....i'm interested to see what you will do with yours...probably the same thing as me ...because you know we are
same-same!...lol

Trisha said...

Those candy bars look so fun! I love those polka dot fat quarters. A good staple for any stash. Glad you are safe after your scare. That would shake me up too.

pratima said...

Have a great weekend :)

Those precuts look so fun. Can't wait to see what you make up with them. And that Rae Ann, she really goes above and beyond doesn't she?. I won her giveaway on Stash Manicure last month and my prize was fabulous! She's SOO generous!

You showed the basket quilt at the Alpine Quilt Guild a few weeks ago right? I love it and am itching to make one out of my stash one of these days.

Micki said...

The precuts are so pretty...everything is wonderful! Enjoy them all!

Usually the pre-cuts are cheaper than fabric in canada but those candy bars were nuts! It's only 2 charm packs and they're over $20! Some stores sell the charm packs for $5-7 so it's not good value like that...

The price doesn't make them less cute though lol!

I can't wait to see what you make!

Jen in NY said...

Oh goodness, that must have been awful on the freeway! Too close for comfort. So glad you weren't involved.

Bliss is my favorite of those too but I do like them all. I love fabric precuts, if only because you can sample a whole line (and not have to do so much cutting is a bonus). If I move to Utah can I join your group of friends?? :-) Jen

Pat said...

I'm so glad you weren't in that accident. And...once again, I am bowled over by the little gifties your gal-pals put together. LOVE the fabrics you bought in that candy bar. How much of each fabric is in something like that?

Shari said...

I just love that Moda Candy Bar! Haven't seen it before - and fat free! How can we resist? Enjoy it! And so glad you had fun with friends - always like a mini-vacation...

Nedra said...

I am so happy you are safe, and avoided the accident too. How frightening.
Love those new candy bars and looking forward to seeing what you do with them.

Dawn said...

Glad to hear you are safe! Yummy candy and gifts.

Thimbleanna said...

Another fabulous fabric friday! Love those candy bars!

Kim D. said...

I love Moda, pretty pre cuts and interesting sizes. Lots of nice gifts too. What a nice group of ladies. Enjoy!!

Janet said...

It is awful witnessing an accident, lucky you weren't involved. Those friends of yours are so generous and kind but I'm sure you do the same thing.
Love the bumblebee, too cute!

Cathi said...

Glad you managed to avoid that accident!
Do I see some hexagons in there? :-)

Rae Ann said...

I am sooo thankful that you were safe my friend! I had no idea!
It was so fun being with you the other day and you are the greatest when it comes to gift giving. I am still trying to decide if I can really bring myself to use that DARLING vintage fabric pieces that you gave me. I just love having it right on my table top so I can view it each day... oh... and pet it too!
I am happy that you have already cuit into some of the pieces that I gave you. :)
Can't wait to see what you make out of your candy bar fabric!

Jan said...

Oh Nanette, thank God you managed to stop in time; and I can certainly understand why it is still effecting you!!!! I sure hope the other folks are OK.

What an adorable MODA treat!!!! Love all the other fabrics too and the "gifts" never cease to amaze!!!!

Lastly, Natalie's quilts below are gorgeous!!!! Please tell her that I really love them :)

Momoo said...

Your friends sure come up with cute gift ideas. Glad you were able to stop in time, accidents can be very emotional.

jaycad said...

Ooooooh those candy bars look great!

Muddling Through said...

Oh, yay! I had seen the candy bars on one of the Aussie blogs, but hadn't seen any here. Glad they're available now. That's handy size. And as always, what charming gifts you sewing pals share!

Carrie P. said...

I have not seen those candy treats yet but they look fun to work with. Oh, the little gifts you got are so sweet.
