A Little Retail Therapy

I haven't bought fabric in quite some time.  But I have been working so hard lately, I decided to reward myself with a little retail therapy!




Okay, so these fabrics aren't really for "fun".  I have an original pattern I want to test and these fun fabrics might just work.  I will share the finished project at a later date.







And these stencils I bought are also for work.  I really needed only one of these but with the high cost of freight, it is worth your while to order more than one.  It is always fun to have new tools to play with.


Some of the real fun starts with collecting some pieces from Carolyn Freidlander's Architextures by Robert Kaufman.  When I was young, I really wanted to be an architect so I am really "drawn" to these.


And this little pile of fabrics is ready to be something.  The prints are designed by Brigitte Heitland for Moda and the solids are Quilter's Linen from Robert Kaufman..

I can't get enough of these Quilter's Linen.  They work themselves into many of my projects.


And then there is always the fabric you buy with no project in mind but you know you just have to have it. Malka Dubrawsky is the designer and Moda is the manufacturer. 

And I am the owner of these two pieces!





So many possibilities with these little purchases.  I hope you keep checking back here or on my facebook page to see what these become in the future.  


I will be sharing my treasures by linking up with Connie on Linky Tuesday, Quilt Story on Fabric Tuesday, WIPS and Whatnot at Quiltsy and WIP Wednesdays at Freshly Pieced. Be sure and visit them for more wonderful quilty stuff.

I am convinced a little retail therapy never hurt anyone, especially when you score such great finds for your projects. You did quite well.
