New Inspiration

My last post clearly documented that I have been a spring sewing slacker.... however, this week it has topped 90 degrees, and it is humid, and the AC is tripping on before 10am ... indicating my time outside is coming to an end and new project inspiration is needed. (not that I don't have plenty in progress items, but.... we all know how that goes)

My mom is out from CA for the week and I took her down to the discount fabric stores that I found where inspiration abounded.... to the tune of 30+ yards!

I feel that needs an explanation, as 30 yards is excessive even for me..... imagine walking in and finding a cart with these lovelies cut in various lengths, 2 to 4+ yards, marked $2 yard, must buy full cut. I look at them, then at the bolts that I had picked.... and quickly dumped the bolts and grabbed all the cuts I could. The 5 pieces above are from the Pillow and Maxwell Whimsy line in pink. Also got one piece in the blue.

Also this lovely Love, almost 5 yards at 60" wide and the London Calling which is screaming SKIRT to me.
I shunned the bolts, but now think I need to go back because there was some Heather Bailey Fresh Cut as well as some Amy Midwest Modern that were marked $5 yard, but... I am a bargain freak and my head was turned.... did I mention ...30 yards at $2 / Yard!!!!!!!


  1. WOW what beautiful eye candy.

    Can't wait to see what you make out of this gorgeous fabric.

  2. Whoa, that is amazing! You are the ultimate bargain fabric shopper!

  3. Wow Diane what great bargains! Wish I lived just a little closer. Can you tell me where this shop is as I might have to get my husband to do a little detour on his trip over in Ausgust/September!!

  4. I want to shop wherever you just did. Fabulous fabric!
