    Fabric purchases require no justification!
    A stash must be carefully and constantly built. That's my story and I'm sticking with it.

      I just became a fan of Alicia Merret and contemporary quilts!! I've never thought about doing a contemporary quilt before...but it does look fascinating and intriguing!!

            This is a Makower fabric, that I bought
            HERE

            They have this version as well,
            if you prefer a more bright impression.



            I know many designers and manufacturers have sewing notions lines, so will def check out Moda.

            The stash fabrics are also Makower but bought on line at The Cotton Patch

            Thank you for commenting in the thread, ladies!

              Love your fabrics, be sure to post a pic when the tote is done. Thanks for the Your Tube connection. I had never seen her work before. Think I will give it a try someday. Looks like a fun way to make a background . Gloria

                        THank you for the links. I'm definately going to try the curvy lines. I'm seeing a curvy striped table runner in my future.

                        I got a sewing machine for my husband. Good trade, huh!?!
