Filling the Shelves
Yup, there's been a bit of fabric coming in lately.. oops! But in my defence, most of this bundle was to finish a project and then I just had to throw in a few more fabrics to make it worthwhile;)
This stack comes from Mad About Patchwork, if you've read my blog much you know they're a long time favorite of mine. If I'm needing a fabric, I'll always check their website first to see if they have it!
So I'm going to break apart this order here, mainly for my own sake, but maybe you'll find something you must have too!
First off, see that shiny little bag on top of the pile? It says Snow Charms. I just discovered this option recently, but Pam will cut you Custom Charm Squares in any Kona Cotton color!! They come in packs of 40, which is absolutely perfect for pairing with Moda Charm packs. I've bought a few of those Moda charm packs recently and hope to make up some simple baby quilts. I thought I'd try one of these Kona solids packs to go with one of the Moda charm packs, maybe for half square triangles?
And then, this flannel above is just a lucky impulse buy. I like to keep a few flannels on hand to back baby quilts with, so decided to buy 1.5 yards of this one. Ok, so I love it to pieces. I'm going straight to order more because this is a print that I know I will use on the next quilt that I make to 'keep'. Something about the colors and print are just my style!
And then a few more prints above for my Great Neutrals Hunt. Again, that Feathers print isn't a true neutral, but I knew I'd love it as much as the yellow. I just bought a 1/4 yard, which is so wise and prudent, but really I wish I had a half yard. And then the music print, which is a great basic which I know I'll use. Finally some Kona Silver which I'd never tried before and it's a nice pale gray. A solid gray has never been my first choice for backgrounds, cause I'm more of a warm colors gal, but this one will be nice to have around. It doesn't shine pink, or blue which is important to me.
And then a big stack of rainbow yumminess which was my whole legitimate excuse for this fabric purchase! It's backing and binding for my Suburbs quilt! Hope to finish that up soon!
And last of all a Kona color chart. My old one is quite a few years old and I was getting a bit frustrated when ordering since I was missing so many new colors. I'm getting up my courage to cut this new book up like this... although I think I might punch holes in mine and put them on a binder ring instead, like this.
And that's all folks!
Giveaway Newsflash!! to reward you for reading this far!!
So I thought maybe there would be someone interested in my old Kona color card, and then while looking for it, I realized that I already had one of these new ones!! Whaaaat?! I could be grumpy but decided to turn it into a little gift for one of you!. So I have a new Kona color book, and an older one (it's probably about 3-4 years old) I understand that maybe nobody wants an old one, in which case my kids will gladly adopt it! But, if you're interested in either one, just mention it in the comments section, (say whether you're interested in both, neither, or just one) and I'll choose two random winners!
