New Stuff

I just had to get the fat quarter bundle of Paula Prass' Botanika range when Fabricworm went on sale. I saw it for $24 a mt locally but when this went out at $7.65 a yard I just had to get some backing as well. Love birds and butterflies.

I also bought some Piece O' Cake Designs Treasures and Tidbits backing and binding for the quilt on the right.
I have been so good using up old stuff from my stash but every now and again a little bit of shopping goes a long way. Work has been very, very stressful of late and I needed some cheering up. It helps!


  1. Oh yeah - love a bit of retail therapy, me.... and it's taking all my strngth not to look up that Piece O' Cake fabric.

  2. Very pretty! I'm sure you'll come up with some wonderful ideas for these!

  3. Oh, I love your fabric choices. A bit of fabric buying is great therapy!

  4. It will be a real shame when your local shuts down and you won't be able to go in and feel the base cloth or get good advice.

  5. I definitely spend a whole lot more at the local. I agree, some fabric feels fabulous and you don't get that online. The local can give help and advice. I’m just not rich enough to fully support them and sometimes buying the backing for my quilts can break the bank. It’s an expensive hobby. It’s a balance.
