I came to quilting too late to be able to get Flea Market Fancy for a reasonable price... and I wasn't going to let that happen again.
I signed in to flickr the other night, and saw people talking about the "new DS fabric," at JoAnn's of all places (that really did surprise me -- I too am a JoAnn's snob -- I go there for notions and batting, not fabric), but the stuff was too cute to thumb my nose at.
So in between my two appointments yesterday, and while Grandma was graciously watching Steiger, I snuck away to JoAnn's, and was thrilled to find 20 of the bolts from the DS Quilts Collection.
Sadly, I missed one of the blues -- I don't know if it wasn't there (sold out), or if I just missed it somehow...
Please don't tell my husband I went a little overboard.
You can tell him that I've got a couple of the Fairgrounds colorway listed in etsy if you're interested (SOLD). (Sorry if the price seems high; the fabric is $10/yard, (I only had a couple coupons) -- + there's enough to cover the etsy fees.)
I do have all nine of this colorway.
Here's the bundle. And don't worry -- when I was cutting them, I compensated for JoAnn's scissor cutting ways, so you get the full eighteen inches width.
There are two available at the moment, and I hope to cut more of the Picnic colorway (minus one sku) tonight or tomorrow.
But between finding this fabric, my big box of Pirate's Booty, and hearing a healthy little heartbeat yesterday, life is pretty good.
Oh, and it's Spring Break -- LOTS of make-up sewing to get done, and Spring cleaning!
