A while back, I decided to pretty much stop buying fabric at random - I needed a plan for whatever I purchased. Since we were in QUILT SHOP COUNTRY, I had a PLAN!
I decided that I was going to look for yellow and gray fabrics on this trip. I've never done anything in those colors before. Although I don't have a pattern in mind, I now have enough grays and yellows for a quilt!
(I'll apologize for all the photos - the lighting in the motel room is not ideal.)
I also wanted some corals and teals. Again, I don't have a pattern in mind but I have enough fabric.
Then I found oranges, one of my absolute favorite colors. This was not in my plan but oranges are ALWAYS a good find! This will probably be some type of bag.
I need a baby quilt in November. Of course, it is too early to know boy or girl so I bought fabric for one of each. That means I'll be prepared for the next one - maybe! The pinks are very soft - not washed out as the photo shows. I have the pattern and the Moda Cuddle Cloth (like a Minkee) for the backing!
And for a little guy, this soft blue with yellows will be perfect! Again I have the pattern and Cuddle Cloth for the backing!
I didn't take pictures of my thread, needles, etc. but I did photograph this ripper with the eraser. The ripper is normal and the white end helps remove the broken threads. I tried one in the store and loved it.
