I bought fabric again. What’s with me? I can go for a LONG time and buy zero fabric except what I get at the thrift store (which I don’t really count as it’s so cheap) then I open the wallet and it’s virtually impossible to close.
I know if I’m going to be spending money I’d MUCH rather be spending it on fabric than a manicure. With my fabric purchases I get long term entertainment and I get a great awesome finished project that can be enjoyed and used for a LONG time.
So here’s my confession…I follow Quilting Twins on Facebook. Rachel, the twin that works the fabric side of things, has been showing lots of pictures of fabric as she loads them on her site. I was scrolling through Facebook and saw that she just put up the fabric on the far left-the floral. I immediately wanted it as the backing for my Floribunda quilt. Kelli did some of the leg work (or rather cutting work) for me on that and even though I haven’t shown you yet, I’m starting to do some of the cutting too. Well I wanted that floral as the backing. I love yellow roses and this would be perfect. It was $3.99 a yard…how could I say no?
Well that got me looking through the site and I saw the light plaid. Well that would be perfect for my Virginia Bound quilt for a backing. That quilt is made with 100% cotton men’s recycled shirt so that seemed like a great choice….
I should have stopped there but they have a flat rate shipping so what if I bought some other fabric for other upcoming quilts….That’s how the yellow/gold polka dot on the right got into my cart. I have cheddar bow ties on my UFO list which will need a backing…and if not that quilt, I have plans to make Moth in the Window.
And that blue…WOW. I just loved that one and have no reason why I bought it. Again, it might make a great backing for a men’s shirt quilt. I LOVE the design of it.
So…in short…I am blaming these purchases on Rachel from Quilted Twins. If she hadn’t popped up in my Facebook new feed I would have never purchased them.
So all of you out there who don’t have Facebook….I don’t know if you should be happy that you don’t have places to influence you into buying fabric or sad because you missed out on some awesome fabrics. For today…I’m going with the last. I’m sad you missed out as Quilted Twins has some awesome prices and fun selections.
