A local quilt shop has sales running all this week, so I stopped after work last night to get some aqua fabric and see what else I might need. Big mistake. Damage was done, but at $4 a yard I could hardly pass up buying fabric.
I’ll save the part about how much I bought for the stash report later this week. What did me in was a fat quarter bundle of Christmas fabrics. I love Christmas fabrics. Before my son was born I would buy them and use them in crafty projects. In the last ten years I’ve barely used them at all. That doesn’t stop me from buying them though.
Of course I want to use some of those cute Christmas prints right away, but I didn’t have a pattern in mind when I bought them. Knowing I had more fabrics that might coordinate, I started pulling out all my Christmas fabrics.
I had no idea. There are several one yard cuts in that pile that were stored in a couple different places. It’s funny, in an embarrassing sort of way. I guess now I have an excuse to use them.
These are the two fabrics I’ll start with, paired with a solid I found in my stash and one of my hand dyed greens.
I still don’t have a pattern in mind, but I’ll come up with something.
