Somebody STOP Me!

You most likely remember that 2013 was my year for collecting low volume fabrics. In fact, I had so many that I gave away precut tumbler shapes through this blog back in the fall. You may also recall, just two posts ago, that I admitted to having a well-stocked fabric stash; that would imply that I need no additional fabric. Well, old habits are hard to break. I continue to collect low volumes. These two bundles are the results of a low volume monthly "club" that I am enrolled in; plus, I also participate in a swap group of the same type fabrics, it's a happy addiction. Just when I thought I could, perhaps, lose interest along came this STUNNING line of fabric from StudioE designed by Pepper Cory. I purchased the "Fog" color shown here (beneath the bundles). Isn't it the perfect complement for these soft and subtle prints? It was enough for me to fall in love with low volumes all over again. If you think it looks good in the photo you should FEEL it; it has a luxuriously silky "hand", look for it at your own LQS, the jewel tones are magnificent too! I know I will see and be tempted by more low volume fabrics while I'm away later this week. If anyone else is at Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival and you happen to see me shopping you have my permission to stop me... and STOP ME! I know Mr. Goodneedle would be most appreciative.
Life is Good!

I won't be able to stop you. I'll be right beside you! But there are worse things we could do, right?

Your doing your part for the economy, have a
wonderful time on your trip. Shop till you DROP !
Love those fabrics, I had bought some Kaffe shot
cottons , but they were a little too limp for my
taste. Are these very thin?
