While I was working on a quilt for a raffle I found a quilt top I made back in February. I rummaged through my closet and couldn’t find a piece of batting large enough, so I slapped it up on the design wall to remind me to buy batting on payday.
Saturday I stopped by Hancock Fabrics on the way home from a movie…50% OFF batting!!! Woot!
I treated myself to two FQ bundles from HAWTHORNE THREADS…if you need a great selection of fabrics with lightning fast shipping and very good customer service? Shop at Hawthorne Threads!
I kept looking at Heather Ross’s BRIAR ROSE and Jeni Baker’s NORDIKA…then decided what the heck, I’m going to buy them.
The package came in the mail yesterday (was probably there on Saturday, but I usually don’t pick up the mail over the weekend) and absolutely fell in love with Briar Rose! I started looking at them and all I could think of was…1970’s bed sheets and pillow cases from when I was little! I wanted to run home to snuggle up and take a nap with them!
I’ve ALREADY decided what pattern to use to make those lovely fabrics into a quilt! From another purchase that came yesterday, Amy Ellis’s MODERN BASICS II ~
SUNRISE by Amy Ellis, Modern Basics II
And for those Nordika fabrics?? Another quilt I saw in the book (which would TOTALLY be cool with ANY Kate Spain or Denyse Schmidt fabrics, IMHO!!!).
