Stash Report - Week 31

One of the best things about vacations is fabric shopping in new places. 

My in-laws live near Charlotte, and so of course we needed to stop by Mary Jo's. WOW. Such an amazingly good mix of fabric, and huge! I kept telling my mother-in-law, "I can't believe this is your local quilt store!"

The start of what will be an indecent Star Wars stash
Dinosaur Train for a Road to Oklahoma quilt for our adopted baby
Two Fairy Frost pieces for my already indecent stash
And a clearance piece that somehow coordinates - not planned!

Then, on the way home, we stopped at Batiks Etc/Sew What Fabric in Wytheville, Virginia. And they were having a fat quarter sale. I'm glad I'm not a batik-er, because I really don't know how they limit themselves! There's such gorgeous colors available!
Two Peter Rabbit FQs for the Polaroid swap
Five Eric Caryle prints for the Dude
Two Paddington Bear FQs
Two FQs for decoration {Make Life bulletin board! Scissors for the sewing room!}
And nine random blenders

Nothing out, since I'm on vacation from my sewing machine. Although this week's vacation includes a sewing day with my sister, so hopefully the numbers will go back down. No, wait, it includes another fabric shopping day, too.

  1. Oh my goodness... I would never dare to track my fabric purchasing habits like you do - I'd freak out for sure! The FQs you picked up look like fun. Vacations should always include Fabric shopping.

  2. Hard to resist such good deals. I especially like the spider web fat quarter. Good to know you are enjoying your vacation!

  3. Good buys -glad you're enjoying your vacation. Hope you are cooler weather than the central part of OK.....liz

  4. Not a bad incoming considering you were out shopping. A very diverse selection. What's the plan for the Star Wars stash?

  5. oh yeah - great fun to find new fabric stores!
