I have been able to source fabric for a total of four quilts from three different stores, and am able to compare across all of them at the same time. Not only looking for a good price, but comparing colours and patterns before I commit to buying anything. It would be hard to do that at three bricks and mortar shops.
So what have I bought?
From BugFabric.com I got all I need for the dinosaur quilt as well as a few extras for the puppy quilt, and the border fabric for my Birdie Stitches.
From Fat Quarter Shop I got the Kona solids I need for the puppy quilt, and Kona Colour Card, plus I got the white fabric I need for the stitcheries on Tail Feathers.
And finally I will get from The Quilter's Store the other bits I need to complete Tail Feathers (border, binding and some applique bits). I don't think I'll be starting this quilt very soon but the Honey Buns I have for it are from the Clementine range by Me and My Sister (for Moda) and I want to get the yardage before it is no longer available. I haven't clicked 'checkout' yet because I want some discussion with my creative consultant.
All this and I didn't have to pester my husband to drive me across town ;)
What are you grateful for this week?
