I have been so very bad lately on the fabric buying front. But I admit, I find it really hard to walk away from a really good buy when it comes to fabric. Recently, one of my favorite quilt stores, Quiltwork Patches in Corvallis Oregon had their entire sale section reduced by an additional 20%. I like to load up on backing fabrics at these type of sales.
As you can see, the stack was pretty big when every thing was cut. All of my backing cuts are 4-6 yards and will work great for scrap quilts. The center section is all 1 yard cuts and are just good stash additions. The white on white and cross weaves were full price fabrics I needed "just for me". Now I never buy fabric just because it is on sale - I really like all of these pieces and hope to start using them soon. And all of this averaged under $7 a yard so I don't feel a bit of guilt!
And then this arrived today. Okay, I feel like this may have been a bit unnecessary but I did find some more great steals on Black Friday! And some of them are still available so I thought I would share some of my tricks to getting great deals.
I did get three more large cuts of fabric through Craftsy. I find they have great pricing if you look at the larger cuts and the extra wides. The center Carolyn Friedlander crosshatch is a 3 yard piece at 108" wide. It is such a versatile print, I will probably end up using it a lot. And the price....you can't beat it!
My other little buying secret at Craftsy is to look at their kits. Not because you want to make the quilt especially but because of the fabric in the kit. I found a great deal on some Miss Kate fat quarters and Kona solids in this Turn Over quilt kit. I love Bonnie & Camille fabrics and have just about used up everything I have.
And I couldn't believe the bounty of Kona solids in the North and South quilt kit. (Psst....The price is than wholesale for the bundle alone.) I honestly felt like I could have bought a few of these.
I am not sure how long some of these items will last but right now they are still on sale. I will be busy deciding what to make with all my new fabric. Christmas certainly came early for me this year!
