New Fabric Purchases

 I recently took advantage of one of the big sales around Thanksgiving.  My fabric came today so I thought I would share some of the pretties I bought.

Almost all the cuts I purchased were 4 yard pieces.  This size works great for backings on the large lap size quilts I generally make.  I bought three really pretty greens.  A green sketch (no longer available), one called Dapper, and Trellis on the bottom.

I definitely seemed to be in the mood for orange because I certainly stocked up.  An orange sketch and pumpkin mums (no longer available), a Tartan Plaid, another color of Dapper, and a Heather Ross called Roses.  Looks like some orange quilts will be happening in 2021!

I needed some red backings so I ordered another color of Dapper and one called Chantilly.  I probably should have ordered a few more reds but it seems only these two made it to my cart.

And finally I bought some more neutral prints.  The top Trellis print I think I might use as a background for a scrappy quilt.  I am really intrigued by this print and just might have to buy some more of it.  The bottom two are actually wide backings - some white Hand Drawn Lines and one called Word Play.  There are just so many ways these fabrics may be used in my future quilts.  

I think most of these prints were purchased from the sale section.  I keep all of my backing cuts in rainbow order so I can quickly look through them to see what I should purchase to keep my stash well rounded.  I try to keep the cost down on my backing fabrics so I can use them on my scrap quilts.  That makes it easier for me to donate so many of them.  

It won't be long before you start seeing these prints in my finished quilts.  

Enjoy your day - I am off to organize some fabric!

That looks like a good haul, Cynthia! I might be a wee bit jealous that you picked up some of that alphabet neutral. LOVE it SEW much (but I'm on a fabric diet!!)

Hmmm, my Connecting Threads backing order has not showed up yet. So maybe it will be here soon. I bought the postage mark fabric, which I love for backings, and some newsprint. My lapquilts take 4 1/2 yards, so it is always a struggle to keep that much around.

Love to see what others are buying -especially when it's on sale!

I LOVE the Word Play fabric - I use it in a lot of my scrappy quilts. A great neutral.
