And I'm a sucker for Carol Hopkins patterns. Quilts Plus had this fairly new pattern of Carol's kitted up in these wonderful fabrics, with the awesome border print (and sashing) that I just couldn't resist.
Then of course there are the whim purchases - and surprises! I just HAD to buy this chicken head pattern. I guess because it looks so much like I feel these days! So then I decided if I was really going to go wild, I needed some fun fabrics to make it with. So I got the green and black batik's at Hancock's. It will be just a really quick fun project to make.
I had seen the Untitled project made up on the internet recently in reproduction fabrics - and was it GORGEOUS! I don't think the pattern picture does it justice. So when I came across this pattern I had to get it! And I saw the Primitive Gatherings wool mat made up on Colleen's (I think) blog - so had to get that! I debated the kit, but you know - you have to draw the line somewhere!
Last I found this wonderful moda fabric in the back room of Hancock's ready to be cut into 1 yard cuts for the flat fold sale tables. I grabbed the lady and asked if I could just get a bunch of yardage uncut for the same price. She said of course! So I got 8 yards of this fabric for $5 a yard! (Plus no digging to find 8 - 1 yard pieces!) I was a happy girl!
