More Fabric for the Garden Club Quilt

I'm still on the hunt for the Wild Rose or French General Moda fabrics.  Not the easiest to find. Yesterday I found  a piece "Double Chocolate by 3 Sisters for Moda, it mixes well, has a touch of blue and has a great cream background.

Shopping Frinzy

Well, during my hunt this week for black & white fabrics, I bought other fabrics.  Received my book, Love the Primitive look.  I really don't have darks, so of course, had to shop.  Found some great fabrics at SewFlakes in Broken Arrow and The Log Cabin in Bixby, OK.  I also finished the Yellow top, it's ready to quilt, hopfully I will get it sandwiched today and start quilting it.

Yes, it never stops!!!! I told you I am Compulsive....

Vacation Dat! Yeah

Well, we worked in our backyard this morning, it's actually pretty warm here for March.  Then after cleaning up, and making David's lunch, I started sewing.  Finished up the Pink Owl baby quilt.  I will save this one for Granddaughter.  It's 3 panels, then Chenilled.  So cute, Cathy Underhill....Cabbage Quilts, inspired me for the back of the quilt.  You really can't have enough PINK can you

Worked on Sewing Room

Well, I got so tired of hunting fabric.....since I moved .....  Saturday morning I tore into my closet in my sewing room.  I knew I had loads of room, but everything was spilling over.  First, worked on the closet, then tore into the fabric shelves.  I put all my books in the closet, that have me loads of room on the shelves in the room.  I went thru all the fabrics, straightened and folded and placed neatly on the shelves.  I had already turned the sewing cabinet around so that the light would come in from behind hoping to help the glare.  Here are the results.  I am very pleased.  And actually I have MORE ROOM FOR NEW FABRICS,  whee, that's nice for sure.  I definitely need more black on black fabrics.....I was even able to put all my Kaffe fabrics in one of the baskets. 

So inspired to make new quilts.  I have 3 in mind right now......
