I added a few new pieces of fabric to my stash recently for the first time in months. How could I resist when there was a shop quilt with over 10,000 bolts across the street from our retreat center, complete with a sale section, and coupons.
(my sewing friends confirmed that those prints above are definitely me!)
I like to make bags. I know, there’s a surprise! I’ve been making bigger bags these days, so I started to buy larger cuts of large-scale prints. I love the artsy, hand-drawn look of Alexander Henry fabrics.
It’s a whole new way of fabric shopping.
We stopped at a craft shop that had some great fabrics on sale ($3.00 a yard! 62 cents for 1/4-yard cuts!) I think some of these will make great sketchbook covers and shopping totes, especially if I decide to do a craft fair or two.
Now I need to save as many pennies as possible to stock up on the upcoming Field Study collection.
Hope you’re enjoying your weekend. Thanks for stopping by!

The bright bold prints are great!! It is so hard to resist beautiful fabric at great prices:)
You chose well, my mind boggles how you chose them from 10,000 bolts.
Thanks Bev. I had large-scale prints in mind, and Alexander Henry designs, which helped me narrow down my search in such a huge store. Otherwise it would just be too overwhelming!
Nice picks:) I’m shocked that you’re saving up for AMH fabric!!
Yes, Vicki, I know, there’s a surprise, I’m going to stock up on a new AMH fabric! Field Study might become one of my new favorite collections.
These are great prints to use for bags, and a great price too! I love your choices!
Thanks Cheryl! It was fun doing some fabric shopping, especially since I found so many great Alexander Henry prints. Now I can’t wait to put them to use
Seriously. I’m giving you money to shop for me next year. I may need to figure out how to do something with you guys over this year, too. LOVE your purchases!
