22 Dec Fabric Frenzy!
I remember the days when I was a calm and careful purchaser of fabric. I often worked from my stash, adding new fabrics when I didn’t have enough of a certain color or style. I was aware of new fabric lines, but didn’t pay too much attention unless one or two of the fabrics suited my needs.
Enter 2011, Sweetwater, Basic Grey, Daisy Janie, Half Moon Modern, Malka, and Lotta! All of a sudden, I can’t resist these lines – the colors and prints have been calling my name, loudly.
These are the latest bundles of fun to come home with me. Fat quarter bundles of Reunion and Half Moon Modern and a layer cake of A Stitch in Color. Many of my fabric indulgences (including these) have been satisfied by Brenda at Pink Castle Fabrics, but I’ve also found some of my favorites at Pink Chalk Fabrics, Marmalade Fabrics, and Fat Quarter Shop. (No sponsorships or anything here, just a happy customer).
Part of me is dying to pull these packages apart, spread them out and look at each individual fabric but the other part loves to look at them all neatly stacked just as they are. I’d better get sketching – I have lots of quilts to make!
How about you? Do you have a favorite line or two from this year or that you are waiting for in 2012?

I need some Echo badly, but I found a great deal today for 40% off a Half Moon Modern layer cake (Missouri Quilt Co.) and couldn't resist! But those 2 are definitely favorites right now.

I can't NOT buy fabric. There is so much good stuff out there calling my name. I am crushing hard on Lotta right now. I need more Echo!

Oh man, those are gorgeous! I can't wait to see what you do with all of them! I've been trying NOT to buy so much fabric, and to sew from my stash, but it has been really difficult to resist lately. I'm excited for the flea market fancy reprint, but I also love so many of the new lines. I can see why you were tempted by those fat quarter stacks!
