Fabulous Fabric Shopping!

I love shoppng for fabric!  Who doesn't?!?!?  And as hard as it is to deny the great deals at large fabric stores, there is nothing like walking into an intimate quilt shop where everyone is more than happy to discuss your current project and help you with your selection.  My selection was wide-ranging, from girly-girl pink printed birds, to stark white, red, and black printed spoons and forks.  But I love them all.

I was buying fabric to make a lunch bag for myself and some reusable sandwich wraps and snack bags for some friends (which is why there is such a variety).

Another picture of my fabulous fabrics from Sew Inspired Quilt Shop in Simsbury, Connecticut.

Of course, when I got home, first things first...pre-wash and iron!  I always like the way that my thread catcher looks after I cut all the loose threads as I iron.


Where is your favorite place to go when you really want to have fun buying fabric?


  1. Love those fabrics! You're so good to wash & iron right away...I'm not so good at remembering to do that prep work! I'm too excited to jump right in and make!

  2. I know what you mean. It may not have gotten done so quickly had I not been doing laundry anyway!
