One of the things I got a huge kick out of was finding 'my' fabrics. The white with blue pattern here is the same fabric my mom used to make me a sundress in High School, the darker blue above it was the fabric I used to make a dress for myself! Both of those fabrics, and the blue on the border were all used in my rail-fence quilt!
This I-Spy quilt was one of the first that I saw when I got off the bus. I really love it, so many different character prints, a really fun layout. I really want to make an I-Spy quilt for my nephew and this really inspired me.
At the end of the day as I was going back to the bus I stopped by this one again. There were a couple of women standing there talking about it and I said "You know, I think this one is my favorite" and one of the women responded "Thanks" - it was her quilt! So we chatted about it. She made it for her grandkids, who of course love it. That was fun, getting to talk to one of the quiltmakers.
Honestly I showed a great deal of restraint! There were two other shops selling fabric & quilt kits that I didn't buy anything from. ;)
However, now that I have a bunch of free fabric, all of the batiks I bought for my nephew's quilt, several yards from the Fabric Depot outdoor sale, and the sweet little fat quarters from Sisters... I really can't justify purchasing any more fabric for a while.* Not until I finish at least two quilts - the one my sister started, and my flying geese quilt.
*Of course, this fabric diet starts.... tomorrow. =P
