But here's the reality. I LOVE QUILTING! And every time I go to a quilt show there's GOING to be goodies to buy...those must have items. And here's my recent haul from the Dallas Quilt Show...
First up...WOOL! I made a stop at The Rabbit's Lair from Rogers, AR (http://www.therabbitslair.com/). I bought a small wool kit and two bags wool circles in all different sizes for only $10 each.
Shirtings from Cotton in the Cabin from Spencerville, IN (http://www.cottoninthecabin.com/). I loved this booth and could have spent all my money there. They specialize in reproduction fabrics and I settled on these fantastic shirtings. I don't know what I'm going to use them in yet but it'll have to be something really special.
And now my very two favorite finds from Material Girl from Grand Island, NE (http://www.materialgirlfabrics.com/). I'm not big into buying kits but whenever I see a Kaffe Fassett kit it's hard to resist. And resist I did not. Here's a kit I purchased to do Bordered Diamonds from "Simple Shapes Spectacular Quilts" by Kaffee Fassett...LOVE IT!
And then at the same booth I found Kim McLean's Flower Basket Medallion pattern which I've been dying to get!!!
I just love Kim's work and have been collecting these Kaffee Fassett and Philip Jacobs prints for this very pattern. I'm so excited and can't wait to find some free time for this project!
Well that's my haul. Yes I over indulged and the fire marshall is likely on his way to my house any day...but I wouldn't have it any other way.
Till next time...
