Fabric

Modern Meadow:

It might surprise you to know that I’m not a big fabric buyer.  I rarely buy fabric unless I have plans for it.  I’m too cheap.  But I did snag these two bundles a few weeks ago when they were on sale from this shop.   I love them both, and especially love how modern meadow looks in person….so pretty and still husband approved (and that’s hard to do!).

I too buy fabrics only when I have some projects, but lately I have been looking online to buy more fabrics so I have some stack up in my shelves whenever I need them. Those are lovely fabrics by the way.

I just ordered some of the modern meadow yesterday. I love the herringbone!

I love the ric rac style fabric in the whimsy bundle...might have to try and find some of that.

I love the second bundle!!! So cute for a girls room! You should buy fabric more, you're good at it! :)

I'm loving the whimsy...(and am writing down on my "Buy This" List)

I buy fabric all the time...it's a sickness. Sometimes I buy fabric and have absolutely no idea what I'm going to do with it!

Kelli said...

Very nice! So do you have any plans for this lot?

Shana said...

I love that Whimsy!

I also don't shop without a plan. But I have sat staring at the bolts while dreaming up a plan!

Those are great! I am jealous!

I'm curious--what are you going to do with the whimsy? I bought some for a quilt for my son's teacher (end of year class gift). I thought it was perfect. Still contemplating the design. And I didn't think I cared for modern meadow until I saw it in person last weekend. Gorgeous. Excited to see the quilts.

I love them both! So what are your plans to do with them?

You have so much more restraint than I have. I am definitely guilty of falling in love with a fabric and buying it. Then, I go home and find a way to use it.

oh, those are some pretty fabrics! I got soem from fresh squeezed whe there was the sale too! I am the same with fabric, buy it with a project in mind.

I have some modern meadow for a couple of different projects. I buy fabric way too often, with no plan in mind. Fabric therapy...

Laura said...

I used to bet that way, only buying fabric when I had something in mind, but now... I don't know the last two years I've just started accumulating more and more. I sometimes wish I could go back to just buying for a specific project!

Diane said...

I have more fabric than I can ever use but I still buy. I am a sucker for cute fabric!!

Love the fabrics what beautiful fresh colors.

Promised myself not to buy anymore everything is packed and I could start my own store.
Must use up a lot before i buy again .

Stephanie said...

You're a good role model to us all! Wish I had your self-discipline. But instead I'm sitting here cruising her shop and thinking what to buy for no good reason!

Trillium said...

Modern Meadow is definitely growing on me - i've been picking up some lately and it's so much prettier in person. I wish I had your fabric resistance though.

PioneerValley said...

Oh, great fabric selections. I'm cheap, and it helps keep the stash sort of in check, but not cheap enough to pass up pretty fabrics like these :)
