Fabric Confession

Forgive me. It’s been a couple weeks since my last confession.

This is all from the Odds and Ends collection by Julie Comstock of Cosmo Cricket for Moda. I love the vintage designs and colors — especially that green! This will be another quilt for me that I’ll be working on after the first of the year. I picked up most of this on clearance from the Fat Quarter Shop here. You can save an extra 20% off your purchases through the end of November using discount code fatquarterly558. (Thanks, Fat Quarterly!) The top two came from LQS Janie Lou. One of them will be the binding. I’m not sure which way I want to go with it. I’m planning on a very simple quilt top pieced with the charm pack squares.

On the bottom of the stack is what I recently purchased from LQS Jackman’s Fabrics. They had an anniversary sale with a 30% off coupon. This is Bella Solid 9900 177 Home Town Sky from Moda. It’s for the Winter’s Lane quilt I’m making. One of my many projects started. I seem to hop from one to the next chipping a little away at a time here and there.

This is a charm pack from the Mod Century collection by Jenn Ski for Moda. I just love these mid century modern prints. The designs and colors are fantastic. I’m thinking of using this for some small projects — coasters, mug rugs, potholders. This charm pack and the next three fabrics I purchased from The Quilted Castle. I want to tell you that Allyson at The Quilted Castle is a super nice person. New customers can save 10% with discount code newbie.

This will be used for the binding on the Billet-Doux quilt I’m currently working on.

This is a Michael Miller cherry print. I have a tough time resisting cherry, strawberry and blueberry prints. I think this would be great with some other prints like gingham for potholders.

This print is from the Spooktacular collection by Maude Asbury for Blend. I love the vintage look of these guys. Part of a table runner for next Halloween, I’m thinking!

Here are a few pieces of fabric I picked up from the freebie table at the last meeting of the modern quilt guild I belong to.

Lastly are these two flannel prints. This photo makes them look horribly blah and fuzzy, which they’re not. Unfortunately, I bought the last on the bolts of these prints and my 40-something eyes misread 7/8 (in microscopic print) on the pattern envelope as 1/8 and now I don’t have enough to make pajama pants long enough for me. However, I can makes ones long enough for my daughter. She said she’ll take a pair made with the fox fabric but doesn’t like the flowers. See how our tastes differ? I like the flower print best of the two. Well, I’m going to go ahead and make a pair with the flowers and have her see if her friend would like them.

I’m done. I hope you’ve made some fun fabric acquisitions lately!

    If you confess it can’t be held against you, right? Loved this! Good looking freebies and those foxes are cute! I have some winters lane I need to get to before Christmas:)

    Hi Melissa, I’d love to see more of your blog, but the photos are way too tiny. Can you make them bigger?
