More Fabric Stash Building
I've been on a fabric diet for awhile now, but recently I gave in a did some major stash building. This is a sort of Happy Birthday to Me gift, although my real birthday isn't for another month. These fabrics are fat quarters from the new Katie Jump Rope collection by Denyse Schmidt. I think I have a few other designs thrown in there. I think the oranges, browns and blues are a fresh and retro color combination.
I purchased most of these fat quarters from Purlsoho.com. Check them out HERE. I made a special email request for fat quarters instead of long skinny quarter yard cuts and Jennifer was very accommodating and my order arrived very quickly. Thanks, Jennifer!
Purl has an inspiring blog, the purl bee, too which everyone should check out: HERE
Here are some other traditional vintage style fabrics I found at my local quilt shop. They also will cut fat quarters if you ask.
I also finally gave in a purchased this sock monkey fabric which I've seen around for a couple of years. They had a several bolts of coordinating fabrics at the local quilt shop. I used the red one to recover our yucky mouse pad. SpongeBob was looking pretty dingy and these sock monkeys are even more cheerful than he is.
I'm still thinking about projects to do with these fabrics. I think I'm saving the Katie Jump Rope collection for a quilt. I also agreed to do a craft fair with a couple of friends. Some of this might slip into those crafts too.
