Fabric Talk

I won a giveaway recently from Lisa of A Spoonful of Sugar. (thank you, Lisa!) It was a gift certificate to the Ladybug Quilt Shop, which is stocked full of beautiful fabrics. It took me almost two weeks to decide what to get! I ended up choosing two packs of Pure charm squares, and a stack of these whimsical Be Merry fabrics. (charm square packs include 40 –  5″ fabric squares)

I also splurged on a few more charm square packs from fabric collections I love but have tried hard to resist. I might have a new favorite designer here. I’m hoping to use these to make Christmas gifts for friends and family.

I’m in the process of re-organizing my stash, so I didn’t want to add more fabric to the piles. I now have a drawer dedicated to charm squares, where I like to keep pattern ideas too. The drawer is just about full now, so I cannot order more. (but I probably will anyway!)

  1. You lucky girl—Congrats on your win! Love your choices for fabric especially the Christmas fabric with writing on it.

    Really need to get some bliss and Fandango!!! You already knew that though 😉

  2. Oh wow!! First you had me drooling over pumpkin muffins – now you’ve got me drooling over stash – congratulations on your win – you have used it well. I feel a trip to the fabric shop coming on as I had a couple of those same charm packs in my hand. Gorgeous :0)

  3. Hello Terri! Congratulations! You have chosen beautiful fabrics! What a joy to work with them!
    Best wishes Teje

  4. Oh wow! How fun! It always takes me FOREVER to use gift cards because I have to hmm and hawww over EVERYTHING, and change my mind a million times! Now if I could just win the lottery or something, then I could just buy it ALL and not have to worry about it! 🙂

    Beautiful fabrics!

  5. your fabric choices are amazing! i can’t wait to see what you make with all those lovelies! good for you for having a dedicated charm pack drawer. fill it up! 🙂

  6. Great fabric haul! I love the Pure line but only have a sampler charm pack of it. It’s too cute to use.
    I can’t wait to see all the fun stuff you create out of these.
    p.s. I looked up Google Reader and somehow have lots of blogs already subscribed in it…I don’t know how that happened but it saved me a lot of time so thank you for suggesting it. 🙂
    Now off to put Bliss and Fandago on my wishlist…….

  7. I know how you feel about not buying anymore, then they come up with fabric designs we just can’t live without. I have those charm packs and then to top it off our quilt shop gets the full line of the fabrics in also, you no to go with the charm packs. You know we have to have some yardage then. So I end up with way to much fabric. I love Bliss, Fandango, and Pure. I have no idea what to make with any of it.
    You were a lucky girl to win such nice fabric. Can’t wait to see what comes of all of it.

  8. Hello Terri,

    Oh you lucky thing,those charm packs are so aptly named. Hope you do some lovely sewing with them. I will have to try your pumpkin recipe you had in a previous post,it sounds delicious.
    Happy days.

  9. LUcky, lucky girl! I can’t wait to see what you make with these pretty fabrics. I especially love the sweet, little pattern from the bliss line of fabric…I’ll have to check out that line! Thanks for sharing! As for your stash, sounds like you’ll need to dedicate another drawer to your growing hoard 🙂

  10. drool! those are beautiful fabrics and I’ve recently acquired some here and there as well…but no idea what to do with it all. It just makes me happy to see the pretty patterns and colors 🙂

  11. Great charm packs. I know what you mean Kate Spain makes some fun fabrics. I like charm packs because you get a little taste of all the fabrics in the line. Have fun creating!

  12. Ooh..love the bliss pattern! Congrats on your win, great bundle. Sadly I haven’t heard of any of those…blushing..gotta go check them out!

  13. What great choices you made! Those are all lovely… and there is no such thinas having too much stash…. you realy need to buy more… you just never know what might come up… I can’t think of something right now, but something could come up that would eliminate our ability to get such great fabrics …

  14. Gorgeous fabrics Terri, I’m loving those snowmen and I’ve had my eye on 12 days of Christmas, Bliss and Fandango and Pure as well. They are such hard ones to resist. Can’t wait to see what you make with them.
