Fabric, Interrupted.

  Oops. I forgot to keep you all abreast of my adventures in Fabric-land. These 20 long quarters (as opposed to fats) were bought last weekend over two days at City Quilter. On Saturday, I spent over an hour wandering around, trying to find fabric that inspired me. After an hour, I just grabbed a … Continue reading

“Long fats!”

  An update on the fabrics I bought at City Quilter the other day! As you can see, I’ve stuck with my man Roy G. Biv for the moment. As you might NOT see, I discovered a small bin of “end of bolt” pieces: One dollar for solid fabrics and two dollars for prints! Genius! … Continue reading

While it seems that I … Continue reading
