Let me start by saying...I won this from the lovely Alison of Little Island Quilting. I have to say it's been a while since I won a giveaway of fabric. So this was very exciting to me. Especially because these are some of my favorite colors and I have very little of them.
After I received them I shot Alison an email saying that I got them and thank you. She replied and said, "I look forward to seeing what you do with it...you're not allowed to stash ok?"
I'm SO GLAD she said that because honestly, I would have stuck the pretty fabric in my cupboard for another day. Because I feel like I have a ton to do right now and I keep procrastinating. So because she wanted me not to stash, I thought about it the day I got it. I went through my cupboard of fabric to see what I had. I decided I was going to make a simple half square triangle quilt. I wanted to get started right away but I needed more blues. I didn't want to order any fabric because honestly in the past week or so I've ordered over $100 in fabric online. (Fabric I don't need, but was on sale and I couldn't resist.)
Ok so back to my blog title...I went to Joann's for fabric. I found lots of great fabric that will work perfectly.
So what's the deal....do people not use Joann fabric? Yes, their selection is sometimes limited, but I go there a lot and seem to find what I need most of the time. I've had no problem with their fabrics. Yes, some are thinner than designer fabrics, but I usually skip those. I try to buy the better quality Joann fabric when possible.
Now I have all I need to complete my half square triangle quilt.
