This happens to be the first fabric that I have purchased (in any sizable quantity) since fall 2009. Yes, you read that right. It has been almost a year of a fabric diet. I have been shopping the stash, doncha know. But yesterday, ah, yesterday. I went to The Rocky Mountain Quilt Festival on both Friday and Saturday.
Friday I test drove all the long and mid arm machines that I could. What fun! I know what I want and now need to start saving pennies and dollars. I also scoped out some booths for a re-visit. I did buy 1 yard each of these three Robert Kaufman fabrics:
Pieceful Garden by Mary Sorensen. Pretty cool, huh?
And then the icing on the cake was the discovery of this fabric: Prayer Flag by April Cornell on the Fat Quarter Shop's web site. I had a gift certificate (thanks Suzan!), added a bit of $$$ and was able to buy 6 yards of this luscious fabric.
I did my bit for the economy this week end. Now I need to get busy sewing.
