Fabric Friday

On Wednesday I mentioned that The City Quilter was having a 20% off sale (psst: it’s still on today). And yesterday was also Visit Your Quilt Shop Day, which a lot of people blogged about.

Between the two of those, well, I practically felt an obligation to go see what they had. I’m sure you know what that’s like.

I have to admit, I am trying not to buy anything unless something leaves my stash, because I am simply flat out of space for fabric, but yesterday I made an exception. (For better or worse, I’m good at those.) But I could always count it as part of the replacement for the fabrics I pulled from stash for my scrappy trip quilt, if I really need to rationalize it.

I did go in with restrictions in mind: blenders and grays. I was hoping to pick up some Simply Color sprigs in graphite, but couldn’t find it. Instead I picked up a number of different grays (and one text print) in one-yard cuts:
Full-yard haul 01/24

And I picked up some half-yard cuts of Flea Market Fancy, Madrona Road and the City Quilter’s subway map print in white:
Half-yard haul 01/24

I’m planning to use the madrona road prints for a pincushion, with a solid neutral as the third color. I have no idea what I’ll do with the others, but my stash was low on grays, and I love the Flea Market Fancy flower dot print so much that I’m sure it will get used up quickly.

I sew and bead to fundraise for charity. I have two spinning wheels and three sewing machines, and more knitting needles than I probably really need.
