I found Kirsten with her baby Zoey and her mother there. They quilt... so they knew what they were doing. We oohed and aahed over Amy Butler's Midwest Modern line, wept with joy over the Moda collections, and drooled over Michael Miller fabrics. And then we said good-bye (and good-buy) to our bank accounts.
I mostly got fat quarters because they are so darned cute, but also because the line for the cutting counter was a mile and a half long inside the store. I also got two Moda charm packs. Those are so convenient! Especially because I don't have a cutting mat and rotary blade and all that quilt goodness. Someday I will, but today is not that day. :)
I was going to make a quilt out of a Moda charm pack but realized I needed two charm packs for the pattern I was looking at. I only bought one. Ah, the mistakes of an ignoramous. I shall come up with something else equally as exciting using half the squares, I suppose! I just grabbed prints I liked... not really coordinating anything. I have plans though... big plans.
When my husband came home for lunch today (I love that he comes home for lunch!) he told me he was jealous that fabric had replaced him in my life. Since when did he get that idea??? hee hee. He just watched as his oldest child played with all my fat quarters, calling them "pesants (presents)" and "fabwiks (fabrics)" and making "trains" out of them. I think he had an inkling that fabric obsessions are genetic. And he worried.
So, to those fabric demons that got me today... congrats. Now go away until the next paycheck.
Until then, we're satisfied.
