Reno, a fabric destination?

First, let me tell you that Patty is the winner of the note cards from last weeks Rick Rack Rocks give away.

Next, want to see my spring break fabric scores?
These are Fat Quarter bundles that I found at (gasp) Joann Fabrics! Yep... that's is Henry Glass, Cosmo Cricket by Andover, Michael Miller Dick and Jane and Denyse Schmidt. These bundles of 5 were on sale for $6.30. I have not seen these at my local store but I will be looking harder next time I am at Joann's.
Next, I found a bolt of this Katie Jump Rope at a store called Mill Ends and it was $3.60/yard. I bought all 4.5 yards they had. They had other interesting stuff and this store will be a stop for me next time I am in the Reno, NV area.

I found 4 traditional quilt stores and picked up these odds and ends, all on sale.

And what may have been the find of trip I discovered a store called Beverly's while surfing online and stopped at one on the way to the cabin from the airport. I would compare this to a Joann or Hobby Lobby, but, they had a fantastic selection of fabric, all quilt store brands. I got the Moda Pumpkins Gone Wild above for $1.98/yd and the Momo Wonderland below was $4.75/yd. I was never thrilled with this line but had never seen in IRL, and it is beautiful!

I have to admit, I had to buy a carry on bag to bring all this home, but geeze, who could pass this up?

Now, help a girl out, what do you think of the dots I have paired with the Wonderland? Do you like them or do you think I should save them for another day/project?


  1. Diane, Congrats on scoring all the beautiful fabric!! Love the polka dots with the MoMo. I've found a few bundles of quilt shop quality fabric at Joann's as well. The last time I went I found some Kaffe Bundles, yes that's right, thought it was Kaffe and should have bought more than one.

  2. Congrats on all your great fabirc finds. I think the dots look great with the MoMo.

  3. I just wish my Joanne's had the same fabric selections! What is the mushroom fabric? It is so cute!

  4. Wow! What a wonderful spring break you had collecting some gorgeous fabric! I love the dots with just about anything, and it looks like they go especially well with the Wonderland.

  5. What a wonderful collection of beautiful fabrics Di.

    Yes I love the polka dots with your Wonderland fabric.

  6. You scored big! Love it all:) We're getting a new Joann's and I hope they have some of these choices.

  7. Yeah I think the dots look great with those fabrics and the colours look perfect! Such a great fabric haul!

  8. Hi Diane! I just happened onto your blog and loved all that that I saw...especially all of those wonderful fabrics. I was just at our Joann Fabrics on Monday and I didn't even take time to see all they had. I will have to take a closer look next time. Thanks for sharing... I'll be back!

  9. Oh, girl you got some fabulous fabrics. I just bought a 1/4 yard of the Katie Jump rope at a shop I visited this week.
