I think I need to go on a fabric diet, again.

My LQS, that was about 5 miles from my house, closed last month.  It was convenient  if I needed something, fast.  They specialized in Civil War prints, but the rest of the inventory was quite modern.  Now, the quilting fabric store that I really liked, it was about 40 miles away, is also closing.  I got their email on Thursday, stating all fabric would be $4.50 a yard.  Like most quilters, I really don't "need" any more fabric, but I talked myself into going.  I'm serious, I almost didn't go, but I really love this shop and it's similar to what my own fabric store would look like if I was an entrepreneur.

Here are my "finds".

This group, I bought more than the one yard minimum.  Top to bottom, Washi by Rashida Coleman-Hale, French General Stone Texture, and a bolt of Black Magic by RJR.

Pieces of Hope by Riley Blake, On the Road by Wild Apple, Stitches by Lynette Anderson and Pure by Sweetwater.

For All Seasons - Winter by Kim Schaefer, Old Glory by Sara Morgan, Grow with Me by Moda and Adoring by Sandy Gervais.

Little Apples by Aneela Hoey, Quilts for Kids by Amy Schimler, Urban Zoologie by Ann Kelle, Ric Rac Rabbits by Marisa and Creative Thursday and Need'l Love by Renee Nanneman.

I hope I'm not being boring, but I like to list the fabric names, in case anyone else wants to get some.  I also got some goodies in the mail.

This is called Havana by Monaluna.  I got it from etsy seller

And I got a wonderful "bunch" of fabric from

Commute by Jay-Cyn for Birch fabrics, top two, Circa*52 for Birch fabrics, Bungle Jungle Crossword, the next three are Vintage Modern by Bonnie and Camille.

These three panels are by Jay-Cyn for Birch Fabrics

The last is this great geometric by Robin Zingone.

Spoonflower also offered free shipping one day this week and I placed an order, including this fun fabric.

 I think I need to go on a fabric diet, again.  Anyone else need to go on a fabric diet?
May your bobbins always be full,


  1. Oh my, you have NO IDEA!!! These past 4 months have been shop, shop, shop, sale, sale, sale.......I think I have added close to 400 yards of fabrics, and I don't even have them all yet. 5 more weeks, and NO MORE for me. I am done. I can do it, I did it allllll of last year. I don't think I even bought 10 yards last year. So yes, Come Jan 1, 2013 I am on the strictest fabric diets of them all, again.

  2. I think your additions are the best kind, I love those lettered prints.
    I was so sad to hear Quilter's Coop was closing, my closest store The Fabric Patch is closing, and Ginger's is for sale. Oh, my, I am so sad to see these changes, but I do understand, our budget is really tight, too ~

  3. So sorry your favorite shops are closing! How far is the next one? And I think you found some amazing fabrics! All of them yummy!
