I caved and order fabric from Whittles Fabrics. Fabric there is often only $5 a yard so I’ve been known to get tempted. I needed the lime green backing.
As always..Whittle’s had what I wanted and more….too much more. I purchased the lime green $4 a yard for the backing.
Then while I was there…(come one, you know how it goes..I was already paying the $6 standard shipping charge. Why not make the most of it?)Then they had the cute two flannels to the left…and well -I am going to be a grandma. I thought to give those to Kayla and see if she would make a couple nice crochet edged receiving blankets for Kalissa.
Then I have three baby quilts that I know I have to make. The fabric with the people on would make a cute backing for girl baby quilts.
Then they had a grab bag of Civil War fat quarters for $12 (front to the right)…I always love those. It gives me great variety as often I wouldn’t buy those prints. I think it gives my quilts more depth.
Then as long as I was there I got to thinking….Bonnie Hunter’s been teasing us all with her gray string blocks. I am guessing I’ll likely be making whatever quilt she’s making once that book comes out…but I don’t have grays so what the heck. I had them add some grays. I love them all. I often do that. I’ll just send Cathy, from Whittles, a note and tell her to pick out 10 grays of half yard cuts. Cathy picks out great ones every time. When fabric is typically only $5 a yard, even if I’d get a dud, I’ll just chop it up and add it to a scrap quilt….it’s all good.
As always…Whittles came through with some great fabrics for me.
