I had a personal shopper go abroad with my money to buy fabric. It was an expensive shopping trip for me, since I paid her 100% of the purchase price for her time and effort. I'm hoping the extra will come back to me when I am old and needy. The light blue fabric is a gift from Tanya. Thanks Tanya! See that dark cloud fabric beside it on the top? This is what it looks like.
She kept handing me bag after bag of fabric. Everything was wrapped so nicely. I hated to mess up the wrapping, but I wanted to fondle the fabric. There are so many wonderful designs and textures.
I asked for some blue and brown fabric - things that would go together on a quilt. Nice.
My favorite is this gradation of fabrics and the magazine. Swoon! That magazine has a lot of beautiful projects and patterns in it. She probably bought it because of this picture.
I know how they can fit so many patterns in one magazine. They conserve pattern space by using the same space for more than one pattern! and to think I am offended when they print patterns on both sides of the paper!
There are so many beautiful, diverse fabrics. I will probably be making other things, like bags and table cloths out of some of them. If you can think of a good quilt pattern to use for these fabrics, please let me know.
