Quilters Haven is in Olathe & it's about a ten minute drive for me.
When I was there I overheard a lady asking for her magazine. I wasn't sure what she was talking about..... so I ask.... I'm so glad I did!! Quilters Haven is showcased in the Spring/Summer 2010 edition of the Quilt Sampler and of course I bought myself a copy and some fabric.
Here's a picture of my new fabric.
I'm not sure how most people buy their fabric but I like mixing it up. So, I saw this darling stripped fabric and I took it around the store matching the colors as best I could. The only color I couldn't find was the orange.
Here's the list of fabric starting at the top
- Farmers Market by Sandi Henderson - Stripey
- Santorini by Lila Tueller for Moda
- Wild Thyme by Carolyn Gavin/Lilla Rogers Studio
- Simply Sweet by Barbara Jones for Quilt Soup for Henry Glass
- Hunky Dory by Chez for Moda
The next stack of fabric caught my eye because I love using Chocolate with my purses.
All three of these are Faye Burgos for Marcus Fabrics.
The next stack I looked at it and walked away about a dozen times...I'm not sure what I'm going to make with it but I figured if I didn't buy at least a yard I would get home and it would call my name.
All three are Hunky Dory by Chez Moi for Moda.
I bought the next stack of fabric online about a month ago. I get an email from the Fat Quarter Shop every Friday when I saw this fabric I had to order it. It's Verna by Kate Spain for Moda.
My last picture of fabric I bought a few months back from Hancocks of Paducah. I'm already thinking....nieces and Christmas...I think I could make a cute new bag for them.
This stack of fabric is Frolic by Wendy Slotbloom for In the Beginning.
Since it's been a month or two since I've touched my sewing machine I tried my hand at a new bag last night...I'll share it very soon :)
