I'm NOT on a fabric fast!


Today was the day.  Fabric run!  I took along a friend, Janet, who was visiting from Saint John, NB.  She needed fabric to finish a project and I needed thread.  We visited Avonport Discount Fabrics and had a great time browsing and drooling and spending money.   I haven't been to Avonport since last Fall and have been anxious to get there.  I had a great time and returned home with lots of new inspiration. 


I used all my white and light Aurifil 50# thread over the winter so I need to restock.  Just bought 4 spools today so I will have a good reason to return to the fabric store 



More Lucy Crab Shack for my collection

a cute Riley Blake from 2011

another cute Riley Blake 2013

some Basic Grey to add to my collection

Not sure what this is, but very cute!

fabric in the centre is "Flower Girl" by The Pattern Basket for Henry Glass ( along with 2 fat quarters of Kona "Bahama Blue"



"Spot On Wide" by Henry Kaufman  108" wide backing

To use for a totebag for my niece

Love, love love  Sorry I only bought a fat quarter. 

Konas from the remnant bin. 
Now I need to get sewing!  I am working on binding my "Improv Quilt" tonight and that will be off my list.  My long, long  UFO list. 

Hope you had time to quilt today!

  7. The unknown fabric is Blake Riley that goes with the one you purchased. I received the set in my monthly fat quarter collection from Sew Sisters a few months back.
