Maybe for Lent I should have given up buying "low volume" fabric. Now that I'm looking for it, I find it everywhere!
I made a test block with my "low volume" fabrics as background today. I think I'll make this block for my "Block a Day" challenge this Spring. No photo until March 18, when the Block a Day tutorial posts!
Here are some other goodies I added to the Stash this month. I fell in love with Robert Kaufman's "Fox and the Houndstooth" collection at Trelotta. This was clearly a "just because I like it" purchase -- but isn't that what Fat Quarters are for?
It's a good idea to always have one or two baby quilts on hand and ready for giving. Sarajane's "Wee Wander" is my favorite because it will work for a baby girl or a baby boy.
I won this cutie in a giveaway. It's by Cosmo Cricket for Moda, but I can't find the collection name. I think it will make a really cute bag, though!
One of my favorite etsy shops is FreshSqueezedFabrics. The best part is, I can send Randi a message and ask her to put together something good for me, and she always does! Won't this camera print make an excellent journal cover for My Little Sailor the photographer?
You know I can never resist a bargain bundle. And this stack of fat quarters from Pink Castle Fabrics has a lot of modern prints I don't already own, squeeee!
I won one of the first door prizes at the Front Range Modern Quilt Guild retreat last weekend. Which meant I got to choose my prize -- and of course, I chose the charm pack of Denyse Schmidt's new "Ansonia." DS generously provided several selections of her not-even-released-yet fabrics for the Guild to give away as door prizes.
I'll be shopping for a fat quarter bundle of this collection, since lucky Megan won that!
I've told you about the newest shop in Colorado, Cotton Candy Quilt Shop in Loveland. Chrystal generously provided fat quarters for everyone! I don't know how she managed to sneak my favs into my swag bag:
About That Giveaway
A lot of followers commented on the post about the Block a Day Challenge. You'll have to wait until Tuesday, March 18 to find out what block we'll be sewing each day during Spring. I found this great book at Ruth's Stitchery for the giveaway. I think "25 Patchwork Quilt Blocks" is appropriate for this giveaway, don't you?
