Sunday Stash - Pre-QuiltCon

I fully intend to buy a little fabric in Austin this week, but I seriously lost all control when I visited my LQS (local quilt shop), Pennington Quilt Works, last week for our February guild meeting. I had no idea that Jan was getting in Folk Song by Anna Maria Horner, Handcrafted by Alison Glass, and Cascade by my real-life favorite fabric designer and quilty bff, Jessica Levitt. I mean, I was only there two weeks ago!


Anyway, I think guild members in the vicinity might have thought a rabid animal had been let loose. Is it strange that fabric makes me so giddy? Good thing I get to cut it sometimes when I work there in the summer. :) That helps calm me down. I honestly was going to buy these anyway but all the better that my LQS has them. I'd rather pay a few extra dollars to buy fabric from them when they have what I want. And just for full disclosure, I invested in 1 yard cuts of these precious prints (I missed out on all the early AMH fabric, and I've only collected a bit here and there since). I have big plans for these with my medallion quilt.



 I bought a quarter yard of the teal Handcrafted print, a half yard of the tomato red (that's a rare color in my stash), and 2 yards of the light gray solid (Fog)from Cascade. It is TOTALLY my new favorite solid, and I need it for my Cascade Challenge and guild QAL quilts.

Now I have some more florals to bring with me to Austin for AMH's Mod Corsage class. My excitement is hard to explain at this moment. Tomorrow, I start packing!
