Stash Building


Reproduction Fabric


More Reproduction Fabric


1930's Fabric


Primitive Muslin


Mixed Fabric


and Asian Fabric


A good road trip and even though I bought more fabric then I should have, I did buy a lot less then I could have.  As you can see,  I do love the reproduction fabrics.  Great sales on some, so I purchased extra yardage, good for backing doll quilts. 

I was a little disappointed with the 1930's fabric, very little caught my eye, until I discovered the sales table, once again, good for backing.  Also, very pleased with the Primitive Muslin and guess what, it was on sale too!  Love the Asian fabric and I think I did a pretty good job with my mixed fabric.


Oops!  I almost missed some!

The washing machine is humming away and the laundry room floor is covered with piles of fabric, now the hard part, finding a place to store it all. 

Until next time.....happy quilting!

Great bunch of fabrics, Karen. Always fun buying new - especially if it is on sale. Have a great weekend!

Wow, I hope you have room enough!!! I love all, but most of all the reproductions and the aged muslin. The latter I never have seen in Holland.
Happy quilting, Cisca

Beautiful pieces...Don't you find that when you start cutting into them and working with the colors the fabric multiplies. You make so much with these yardages.
