First of all, another day, another snow storm here in NH. Looks like we'll only get a little over a foot out of this one. But I got a snow day from work so I have been in the sewing room and I got my blue star quilt all put together. Now I just need to find enough fabric to piece a back.
But recently I got some great deals on fabric. There is a shop in Concord NH, The Golden Gese Quilt Shop (sorry, no web site), that I like. They have a great selection of excellent quality fabric and always have the latest lines available. But what I like, as you walk in the front door on the right is the bargain section which is where I always look first. Fabric here is always $1 or $2 a yard, and in January they have 20% off fabric all month long so I usually make my way there in January.
Once in a while they seem to clean out the storage and put out some oldies but goodies fabric and this is one of them. This is a Thimbleberries Halloween group that I should have bought but didn't when it was first out. I've seen quilts made out of this on several blogs and have always loved it but it's from 2006 so I never expected to see it.
They also had some of the companion fabrics so I grabbed them. $2 a yard. I see a Halloween quilt being made sometime this year. BTW, they only had a few yards of this focus print and I bought it all.
I also spied some Fig Tree Folklorique fabric which is an older line. The jelly roll was only $5, the charm pack $2 and the yardage was $1 a yard. I have a quilt in mind for this group. Something from Schnibbles Times Two I think. So while I busted out a lot of fabric from the stash for the blue star quilt, I have been enhancing the stash also which makes me a happy sewer.
