I found the fun-est fabric store that's only about five minutes from my apartment! It's like a huge warehouse and there are TONS of fabrics. It's not all box store like Jo-Ann's and it's not all stuck up like a quilt shop, it was FUN and I wandered around for an hour and no one rushed me or kept trying to talk to me. One of the ladies even had me go buy a newspaper so I could use the coupons in it! Oh, oh, AND they take Jo-Ann's coupons!

So, I got these funky fabrics:

And I figured out what I needed to cut to make this pattern:

And I cut a pretty little pile of fabrics!

No quilt in progress pics yet, but they'll be along soon!!!


  1. "Stuck up like a quilt shop" - haha so true!!

    1. I LOVE the stuff in quilt shop - all the pretty fabric collections, all the shiny sewing machines. But the people are usually stuck up old ladies who have been sewing since the dawn of time and think I'm crazy when I tell them I'm not going to pay $5 for a spool of thread.
