It started innocently enough. Every quilter knows they have to develop a stash in order to just whip up a quilt on a moment’s notice. At first, it was just a fat quarter here and a fat quarter there in varied colors. Then I started buying fat quarters from Bonnie and Camille’s Ruby line so I could do the Swoon pattern (which I still haven’t done yet). Then I started buying half yards when I would buy so the fabric would last longer. I have a fairly nice stash now–not very cohesive yet because I’m just buying what I like. One of the half yards I bought recently was Rivoli Girl by Alexander Henry–I LOVE it. That little half yard didn’t last as long as I thought it would. Recently, one of my favorite local fabric/quilt stores, The French Seam, had the line 30% off…I bought 3 yards of Rivoli girl. I do plan to make a skirt with it but I haven’t done anything with it yet except pull it out of the bag and look at it.
Today, I went by Crimson Tate to buy a half yard of Melody Miller’s typewriter fabric–I bought a yard of it, a yard of some Kelly green Kona, and a cute little white embroidered dot. Hmmm, I may have a problem. What fabric have you bought recently?
