fabric diet needed...ASAP

Well, I'm back from vacation and bought a whole lot of fabric that I didn't really need. But I'm tired of liking something, then waiting, then having it not available. So I bought it!

I had a great time at my mom's and the kids had a blast. But I'm happy to be home and ready to get sewing again!
Here's what I got:
Heather Bailey's Nicey Jane. All 50% off from a lqs in Rockford, IL

6 1/2 yards of Anne Kelle's Remix for Robert Kaufman @ 70% off from a lqs in Belvidere, IL. (yes, I bought all that was left on the bolt. I paid $18 for all of it including tax!)

Some dots to go with my "Flower Sugar" fabrics. purchased from Hancock Fabrics in Rockford, IL. One is a Robert Kaufman that they accidentally didn't charge me for.

Michael Miller's Lil' Cowpokes and Lil' Cowgirl and a blue bandanna print from the same line. I couldn't resist, it was too darn cute! Purchased at Hobby Lobby.

Some miscellaneous prints from Hobby Lobby that were all on sale 30% off. 

and of course, some of those Denyse Schmidt fabrics that are now at Joann's that everyone is talking about. Another that I was not going to miss the boat on!


  1. Sales and great finds are a must!!!! I would say you did VERY GOOD! I want to go shopping with you next time.

  2. I know what you mean about waiting and missing out! Great to grab a bargain and your favourites while you long as they will be useful. Sometimes I gain so much joy from looking at a favourite (unused).

  3. At 70% off, I'd be disappointed if you didn't finish off the bolt!

  4. I too must say, you done really well.... Love the fabrics and can't believe the bargins you got... Would love to go shopping with you.... So happy to hear you had a wonderful time with your family... Looking forward to seeing your new projects with the new fabrics, some day. (welcome Home, Love reading your blog)...

  5. Oooh, oooh, oooh!

    Glad you're home safe, had fun and pampered yourself with some "friends" to follow you home!

    Can't wait to see what you do with them!

  6. Welcome Home Jen!! :o)

    Love the fabrics you picked up and I just may need to hop in the truck and head up to Hobby Lobby! :o)

    The fabrics arrived yesterday and I am in love!! Thank you so much!! Your goodies should be there any day!!

    love, Trish

  7. ps. I just noticed that I got the same bandanna print that you did!! :o) I posted my fabric purchases. :o) I wish we had Joanns!! You are so lucky to have those lovely Denyse Schmidt fabrics! I keep checking for them to post! :o)
    Have a great weekend!!

  8. A sale at a Rockford quilt shop...
    and I missed it! Can I ask which shop?
    Great finds on your bargins. Love all your choices.
    When I hit Rockford I better check out JoAnn's. With gas over $4.00 a gallon I better make it worth the trip.LOL

  9. Nice, you got some great scores!

  10. I have desperately been looking for the "Flower Sugar" fabric that you show - the red with yellow dots! Did that come from Hancock Fabrics in Rockford? I looked on their website and did not find it. Please let me know if you need to get rid of it! Lol! I only need a 24" square!!


    1. It's actually red with white dots and it's not Flower Sugar. I think it was just a generic brand and I did get it at the Hancock Fabrics in Rockford but this was a LONG time ago. I don't think I have any extra as I'm using it for a king sized dresden plate quilt. (I'm only 1/2 through it!) ;)


I love hearing from comment away!
