Fabric Shopping

I REALLY needed more fabric. Yeah right! However at 50% off how can one resist? Fortunately I was on a time limit (I am the one that said how long I needed) or I might have purchased more. We were at the Spokane Valley Joann's, it's not even a Super Store, but they still had a different selection than the Joann's in Lewiston and Moscow. The feel of some of this fabric is way better than it used to be and the regular prices are higher too. I am taking after my friend Joanni and showing my purchases!
The red with stars is for American Hero quilts and the polka dot is for my polka dot collection. My daughter Lisa (who is doing the 365 photo thing) likes polka dots and so do I.This is a large scale print I thought would look awesome in a One Block Wonder quilt.I absolutely fell in love with the tiger lily print on the left, my friend Kae Ann did a gorgeous color crayon tiger lily in a class we took (I failed coloring!) and she also had the florist put tiger lilies in a bouquet for me during my surgery this summer. I got the other florals as coordinates for something, I just don't know what!

That's a lot of fabric for someone to buy who just spent upwards of 12 hours organizing what she ALREADY HAS! :) And you better not start any more projects until you are back within the allowable limit of UFO's... remember the rule. No more UFO's than the number of years of your age!

I think that one floral would be great for a One Block Wonder too. Fun purchases!

Oh I love all the fabrics. But I guess there aren't many fabrics I don't love. The tiger lilies would make a good one block wonder too - although the one you picked is also gorgeous. If you aren't "allowed" any more ufos then you just have to start and finish the OBW. :-)

Joann's does have a lot more reasonable quality quilting fabric these days. You still have to be careful about the "wall", but there is more to see and better design.
