Today it's all about fabric (well, mostly--I do have a quilt to share at the end...and a giveaway winner to announce). The first thing that came in this week was 7 5/8 yards of some dreamy fabric from Joanna--her latest line, Strawberry Fields! This is my favorite Fig Tree collection ever. Of course I still love Patisserie, Mill House Inn, Fresh Cottons, and Breakfast at Tiffanys--but Strawberry Fields is just breathtaking--honestly!
I love, love, love the ginghams...note to self...get lots of those for bias bindings!
I love the blues, the grays, the greens, the reds and the the lights!
The yellows are amazing as well--perfect dreamy yellows once again! Not only do I love this fabric, I'm absolutely in love with the design Joanna sent me to sew with it (she'll be introducing new patterns on her blog soon)!
Also in this week...1 yard of Sunkissed grey gingham (because it's the perfect neutral) and 1 yard of It's a Hoot for a border on a quilt I really need to finish!
Also in was 1 1/2 yards of Sunkissed for a bag...(I need to make this fast and will be sharing it soon)!
Out this week was 10 yards for the secret project that came in last week. Hopefully I'll get the go-ahead to share that quilt soon. Also out this week was 1/2 yard for binding on my Bliss "Paper Roses" quilt which I picked up yesterday from Judi. I truly love Judi's quilting--and love this quilt.
I think my favorite parts are the swirling feather flowers in the setting triangles. (Pattern "Paper Roses" by Joanna and Bliss fabric by Bonnie and Camille)!
So...for my stash report I have 11 1/8 yards that came in along with 10 1/2 yards that went "out." For the year to date that makes 39 3/4 in with 35 3/8 out...leaving 4 3/8 not busted!
Oh, and congrats to Jenny...I've just sent you an e-mail...you won the Le Petite Eccole French General fat eighth bundle from Judi!
