I had thought about this post since having a question about it at the guild meeting last Monday. I saw Diane's thoughtful post HERE and am following up with my own blog post.
My fabric shopping has changed with my quilt style. Almost always I stop by Fabric Depot when I head into Portland- it's right on my way to my daughters. It is huge and can get overwhelming if you are just going in without a plan.
And then there is rows and rows of beautiful fabric.
Lovely Lovely reproductions.
Oh wow! I haven't seen these before. Carolina Blues by Paula Barnes. I LOVE them!
Even with 30% off everything I think 9.45 is more than I like to pay if I don't have a plan for the yardage.. Unless I'm looking for something really specific I rarely purchase yardage at Fabric Depot.
This is my favorite corner (remnants) and it suites most of the quilts I make- scrappy.
Here's a fun piece of reproduction.
A gorgeous piece designed by Laundry Basket Quilts
Lots of fun modern pieces too!
Now you know why most of my quilt backs are pieced with various fabric! I forgot to show you the back of Jill's Jewel Box on Monday. These fabrics came from her stash as well.
