26 Sep Stash buying?
Perhaps I have been deluding myself that I don’t usually buy stash fabrics. I tend to think I buy for certain projects. However, in reviewing my purchases over the past few months, I think it is pretty clear that this is not always the case! Oh well 🙂
Anyway – before we went to Chicago last week I checked out the Chicago Modern Quilt Guild‘s website. They include a list of several quilt shops in the greater Chicago area, so I researched which ones were somewhat near the University of Chicago. I think the closest two were Quiltfabric.com and Quiltology.
After we parted from my daughter on Monday afternoon, I thought a little retail therapy was in order! Quiltfabric is closed on Mondays (I’ll get there next time I visit), so we zipped up Lake Shore Drive to Quiltology. What a sweet little shop! Lots of great modern prints and they were having a fat quarter sale. Who could resist?
These are (top to bottom): Floralicious, Michele D’Amore, Bentartex; Habitat, Michele D’Amore, Benartex (two); Modern Meadow, Joel Dewberry, Free Spirit; more Habitat; more Habitat(!); Kaffe Fassett; Midwest Modern, Amy Butler, Rowan. I didn’t realize I had picked up so many from Michele D’Amore’s Habitat line! There are a lot of other great prints in the line that I didn’t get.
Also falling under the “I couldn’t resist” category: a solid scrap bundle from Pink Chalk Fabrics that included about 4 yards of fabric for just under $13!
Guess I’d better get busy sewing!
