Fabric Friday - Pot Luck

10 comments
We are less than 2 months away until spring market in Kansas. (no, I'm not going) New lines of fabric will be popping up everywhere. With that in mind sales abound but I'm also thinking ahead about what might be coming out next. So I want to pick my sale items carefully.
This is a red from Lecien's Fall Flower Sugar 2011. There were several pieces I want to have before they disappear. I have fat quarter pieces in this line but I wanted 2 yards of this red for a project in my head. It is classic.
This is also a piece from FS Fall and I also think it is a classic. That shade of gray with a sweet flower is really a neutral. So I wanted more of this one, too, before it disappears.
This is a Robert Kauffman print that is huge in scale compared to most fabrics. It would make a good table cloth or fussy cut into projects.
This is a little city print with monaluna on the selvage. I think it will make something fun for my granddaughters. I love city scapes like this with a little whimsy.

Allison is with me for at least part of the weekend so her mom can be at the hospital. I'll still fit in a bit of sewing. It is really going to be nice weather this weekend.

I like all the fabrics, but the best part of your post today was when you said you were going to make something for your granddaughters! How sweet!

I just want to say I can not wait to be a crafting grandma as well (I'm 23!!)! To spend all my time making thing for people I love! Oh wait, I already do that! lol

I buy fabric every time I go to Utah, which is about every two months.....I just can't help myself :) I don't know if you follow Kerri Horsley's blog, but she has an etsy site with fabric you would love, little floral prints, lots of Japanese ones. Sew Dealy Loved is the name of it. You can customize bundles too. Just thought you would like to know :)

Oooh, I like them all. Must be something in the air, I've been buying fabric, too. Oh, wait, I do that all the time. LOL And yeah, I've got stuff in my head, too, that I want to make. You and Allison have fun this weekend. It's an ill wind that blows no one any good. Even in the midst of bad things, there are always good things, too, if you look for them.

Great fabrics! Love the Kaufman kitchen print. I'd like to use that for fun applique kitchen towels.
Have fun with Allison! I'm sure she enjoys her special time with you. And I hope little Eliza gets to come home very soon.
