Fabric Frenzy Friday...

Reunion by Sweetwater for Moda

I went to the big sewing and quilting trade show today.  What can I say????  How about Aurifil thread on sale?   That is enough to make for a happy day.  I decided to be economical and buy the super humongous 5900 metre cone of white Aurifil 50 wt.  That should do me for a few months!  It is HUGE!  I might have to take a picture for you.

I popped over to my fabulous local quilt shop's booth.  Actually I bee-lined it as soon as Mr. Security Guard took down the barricade.  I scooped the ENTIRE line of Reunion by Sweetwater for Moda samples.  Seriously!  The whole shebang!  I have explained how this works before but this shop sells off the samples twice a year "buy the pound".  It is like treasure hunting through stacks of fabric samples to find buried treasure!  I love it!  It totally fulfills my scrap-fest love!

More sample happiness

Then I found these lovelies at another vendors booth.  I think they are all Robert Kaufman fabrics.  Daisy and Dots, Chirp and some other pretties that I cannot recall.  MMM yummy.  $1.99 fat quarters and $6 a metre for yard goods.  I love fabric on sale!!!!!

A wonderful fabric Friday made even more special when a bunch of Flea Market Fancy arrived in the mailbox.  But I will show that off later.  Have a super happy day!


  1. Wonderful haul that you snagged! Looks like lots of lovely prints in the bunch. I'm going to have to see if we ever have something like that around here.
