A couple weekends ago, I traveled to one of my favorite “local” fabric shops, Alewives Fabrics, about an hour and a half drive away. I went primarily for the Color for Quilters Class and my first ever Maine Modern Quilt Guild meeting, but also, of course, for the fabric. I knew that in a store like Alewives, I could easily buy enough fabric to fill my trunk, so I went to the class intentionally with the idea of building the greens in my stash, but without a giant fabric shopping list. (If anyone wants to fund my fabric buying budget, I’ll be happy to give you my paypal email address and you can direct deposit as much as your generous heart desires–haha)
I couldn’t resist the feathers on blue or the yellow newsprint fabric, so I let those slide into the mix. I also bought my first ever (gasp) Cotton and Steel. Here’s the (mostly green) fabric goodness I took home with me (from left to right):
- 1/2 yard of What a Gem by Allison Cole for Eugene Textiles
- 1/2 yard of Wee Wander by Sarah Jane for Michael Miller Fabrics
and fat quarters of:
- Collage “Newspaper Stripe” by Carrie Bloomston of SUCH Design for Windham Fabrics;
- Unknown (but awesome) Fibonacci Fabric in green;
- Vagabond Parquet Moon Dial by Parson Gray for Free Spirit Fabrics; and,
- XOXO in Picnic Gold by Cotton and Steel House Designer for Cotton and Steel
While I was looking through Alewives’ awesome fat quarter bins, I stumbled upon the amazing Fibonacci fabric. Not only was it green (my color of choice for the day) but it is totally math-geek friendly. As a complete closet–or maybe not so closeted–math and science geek, there was no way I was going to leave that shop without buying the Fibonacci Golden Ratio fabric.
I have no idea what I will do with the fabric yet, but I sure am happy to have it in my stash! If anyone knows any of the designer/manufacturer information for this fabric, please let me know.
