I got fabric - yes I did
What fun Friday was - tons of errands to take care of - and I got fabric. I almost went home after I was at the library - almost forgetting I wanted to go to the sale. And I'm glad I remembered.
Solids, 100% cotton - were on special for 1.99 a yard. It is a one day sale and last time they had it I got two pieces, thinking I'd go back later and get more. Wrong! The sale only lasts the one day and this time it was July 2. So I planned my day around it - and got there before it was all gone.
My favorite fabrics are 30s reproductions - and the solid colors are not always available - but this time I found this nice stack of 30s colors - fun fun!
This fabric washes and dries like a dream - it comes out so wonderfully firm, yet soft and is my favorite cotton to work with. Just a side note - I will NEVER use Kona solids again - they wrinkle and ravel and are coarse like burlap - not soft, like the fabrics I bought today. I am so happy I went to the sale and got all these fabrics.
They are all washed and the last piece is drying - I even have a special spot for them in the studio. Thread was on special for 50% off too and so I stocked up. I've really been using up thread with all the quilt tops I've been making lately - more on that later.
