New Fabric

I've won a few things over the past few months, so I wanted to share them (along with the generous donors!).

First of all, I won a gift certificate to the Fat Quarter Shop.  I go there on a pretty regular basis, so I was rather excited.  However, the next thing I needed was...Kona White.  How boring.  But you need what you need, right?  I got three yards of white and popped in some constellations just for fun.

Then I won a box from cotton cuts.  I was rather intrigued by it...the boxes that I've seen on other blogs look neat.  And it was neat.  There was a bunch of fabric, some M&Ms, and a few other goodies.  Most of the fabric I liked.  I loved two of the groupings - the batiks and the brights.  There was one that made me wonder a bit though.  It's a cheater panel, but only an eighth yard.  I'm not even sure how to fussy cut it so that the fussy cuts don't look weird.  Oh well...did I mention I really like the other selections?
In the end though, I realized that a subscription box is not for me.  I love getting new fabric, but I try to only get new fabric that I'll use...even if it's just a 2" square for a swap.  All of this fabric went into the correct color box for use at some point, but that point might not be soon.

Lastly, I got the fabric bundle for the latest Riley Blake challenge through the MQG.  I have some ideas floating around, but need to make sure it doesn't get pushed to the back burner.

  1. Somewhere along the line I also learned that random picks didn't work for me. I like to choose my own combinations. This is the first year in a while that I have liked the RB selections--I'll get mine at the February guild meeting. No ideas yet.


Thanks for commenting...I love seeing what you have to say!
