Fabric Shopping

On Saturday I drove out to my favorite quilt shop, Quilted Threads.

I wanted to buy some more of the indigo batik that is the background of my Quick Brown Fox quilt. Here are the other fabrics I bought. A few yellow-orange and pink batiks, this lovely brown leaves batik (which looks just like a tabby cat, btw) and this wild Free Spirit I got on sale. I also bought a wonderful spring-y Art Nouveau inspired fabric (across the top).

This big Kaffe Fassett print was waiting for me when I got home. This is going to be the backing of the Quick Brown Fox.

Looking at the dark fabric with the bright bouquets, I was struck by how many dots there are along the selvage. I lost count at 16!!! I'll bet that piece will trun up in something amazing as well.

What fun - a pilgrimmage to Quilted Threads is on my to do list (hopefully next time I'm in NH). I love those fabrics, but especially the spring-y Art Nouveau fabric across the top - gorgeous!
