Ahem. It appears my last Fabric Confession was nearly two months ago. If you’re not familiar with these, it’s where I fess up to my fabric purchases.

Now, I’ll tell you a little something I don’t believe I’ve shared before. I was crafting on a regular basis up until around the time my daughter was born about 18 years ago. I even had space at a craft mall. After she was born I made things off and on. From my crafting days I still had a lot of fabric that was mainly 90s prints from chain stores like Jo Ann. About a year ago I pulled it all out and took a look. I decided to start over with a clean slate. I gave it all away. It was several paper grocery bags packed full that went to a lady who sews for a charity.

Since then I’ve been rebuilding my fabric supply. I tend to have specific or general projects in mind. Sometimes a print just tickles my fancy. Here are my latest additions.

These are from a couple purchases from the end of February. I’ll mention them from left to right.

  • First is Recipe for Success in red from the Pam Kitty Picnic collection from Lakehouse Drygoods. I bought that from Daisy Cottage Quilting.
  • The next five are from Bobbie Lou Fabric. The sock monkeys are from the Socky collection by Whistler Studios for Windham Fabrics.
  • Yule Critters from Michael Miller.
  • Starling from Alexander Henry.
  • Raccoon in Blueberry from the Acacia collection by Tula Pink for Free Spirit Fabrics.
  • Woodgrain in Bark by Joel Dewberry for Free Spirit Fabrics.

I’m going to make some jammie pants with this Ruby print Bonnie and Camille for Moda that I bought from Daisy Cottage Quilting.

I think this mix of prints play well together. I bought them from a few different places (Daisy Cottage Quilting, O’Sewpersonal and Sew Simple Fabric). From left to right again. I’ll mention the collection and manufacturer.

  • Vintage Happy from Riley Blake
  • A is For . . . from Windham Fabrics
  • Vintage Happy from Riley Blake
  • Gingham from Riley Blake
  • The next two are Vintage Happy from Riley Blake
  • Gingham from Riley Blake
  • Gracie Girl from Riley Blake
  • Vintage Happy from Riley Blake

  1. funny you say that….. I have really ‘old’ fabrics that I can’t part with and some are 10 years old. However, I see WONDERFUL NEW fabrics out and about. I just hacked up and sewed a couple of quilts for my local Project Linus ….. I guess I should hack up more and ‘refresh’ the look of my fabric pallets! I enjoy your NEW selections!

  2. I soooo want to do this. I have been collecting for more years than I care to admit or can count. Would love to just pack it all up and give it away. Instead I’m making quilts out of it. But I am not saving the scraps! Congratulations on getting rid of and starting a new collection!
    >> Phyllis L recently blogged: I spy update…

  3. Thanks for sharing your collection (new collection :) Its so fun to see how others group fabrics – I love the gingham and vintage happy with Gracie girl!

  4. I’ve gone through my stash also and purged the lesser quality stuff. Oh it was painful as I had so much! It took several purges to get it all out! Glad I did! I love those monkeys!
