Fabric Shopping!

I took Breanna home this morning and while I was out I stopped and did a little fabric shopping. I had a few small projects that I either need to do or to finish so I bought fabric to do that.


The"TMNT" fabric and the wildlife fabric are for pillow cases for the boys. Hunter loves Ninja Turtles and Andrew of course loves to hunt so these were perfect for them.



These are just some pinks that I bought to add to my stash. I know I didn't really need them, but you know how hard fabric is to turn down.


Here are some blues that I bought to go with what I already have in my stash. I plan on making a quilt of blues, either a YBR or a 4 patch flip. I haven't decided on which pattern to use yet.



I bought a few yards of each of these fabrics for borders. The green is to border the "Thimbleberries Month-by-month sampler" The middle fabric is actually dark brown, but doesn't look like it in the photo. I got it to border my "Cowboy Boot and Hat" quilt. And the blue print...well, I'm not sure yet, I may use it for my Blue quilt that I am going to make.


That is all that I bought today. I just really want to get some of these things finished and ready to be quilted. I still need to clean the house up more today and I think my MIL is coming tomorrow. Hopefully, I can get back to sewing after all of that.

The fabric are really beautiful. I'm so glad you added them to your stash. I can't resist fabric either.

Wow...I like the looks of that fabric. Hancocks is having a big sale on their Christmas fabric so I may try to get some of it tomorrow when I am in town. Not that I "need" it...but I want it!

Fabric will always get used eventually. I love having heaps in the cupboard, but then when I go to use it I feel anxious, because if I use it, I won't have that one anymore! If I do use a particular piece, I try not to use it all. They sort of have personalities, and they can't be replaced, just added to.

With the way you quilt that fabric will get used up in no time!!
