Playing with Fabric...

Above are a few of the fat quarters that I added to my stash this week.

I rarely buy a larger piece than a FQ unless I have a specific purpose for it....
Of course I have to fall in love with the fabric before I choose to make a purchase... and the number one way that I choose to buy a piece is by it's color.
Yes, girls...color rules my world!
The print becomes a close second.
I usually leave the FQ's out for a bit to enjoy before I put them away on my shelves.

I love to pair them up with each's fun for me to play with them....and to see which ones (that i think) go together.

New fabric is sew inspiring!'s a sure way to get the ideas rolling around in my head.

I always have to stack and re-stack fabric in an order of color and texture that makes me smile:)

I know you do too!

On another note.....Painful Owie = Hello Kitty.
I cut my finger as I was pulling a bolt of fabric off the shelve at one of the quilt shops.
A staple inside of the bolt really got me!

Be careful out there in the fabric world's a dangerous place.
Have a quilty kind of day!

I think the hardest thing for me is picking up what goes with what fabrics. I always have lots of white to keep me grounded. I love your no fear colour choices.

Wow. Same thing happened to me with the staples on a bolt of fabric in Hobby Lobby in Houston. Lucky for me, they had some band-aids over at the cutting table. (Maybe I wasn't the first one this happened to over there?) Golly, I was scared I was gonna bleed all over the fabric. :) Well, I had a good story to tell the grandkids.

But, even the bandaid is stylish.

Not a surprise that you would make even having a cut finger cute.
Hello Kitty.

Lovely fabrics. I owe you an email.

Your shopping bags are lighter when you come home to hide them with buying Fq's. I go to my LQS for Fat Quarter Friday when I need my fix... Sorry you got a staple on the bolt. I sprained my wrist once and had to rest it way too long. I'm glad you had a cute bandaid to put on it.

The fabrics are just lovely!

Glad you came out safely from that nasty staple;)
