"Nifty-Nine boxes of fabric on the floor..nifty-nine boxes of fabric! Take one down, share it all around, nifty-eight boxes of fabric on the floor!"
Yes, things are getting a little out of control around here. My husband, a.k.a. the Shoppin'est Man in America, brought home yet, more fabric.
Nine more boxes of fabric, to be exact.
While I appreciate fabric, especially as most of this is recent, quilt shop quality name brand fabric, it is summer vacation around here. There are three boys running around the house, needing a lot of attention.
All this fabric needs to be washed, dried, pressed, folded, and sorted out. It's just not going to be finished until after school starts. It's not.
I did get a chance to peek through everything, though. There are some nice pieces in there, some hand-dyed fabrics, some marbled fabrics, even some batiks.
Also, some nice flannels. I've been doing some new designs using flannel on muslin with a little trimmed embellishment. I'm liking that so far.
There were a few baggies of already cut shapes, too. A nice baggie of triangles, one of squares, a few are assorted shapes. I'm going to have to take a better look at those to see if they form some kind of quilt block. It's like a mystery puzzle. These should be fun to play with.
I also discovered a decent amount of velvets, satins, and some other really gorgeous fabrics. Maybe it's time to make a real Victorian style crazy quilt.
This last photo shows some of the fabrics washed and folded. Yee-ha! Love the peachy hand-dye in the middle. I'm sure some of this latest find will eventually wend it's way into the Fabric Section
of the Curlicue Creations Shop. I simply can't keep all this treasure to myself. It sure is a lot of fun to play with, though. New ideas and inspirations are springing forth.
Until next time....have a super day & get creative!
