What made this fabric fascination emerge? A small paragraph in Martha Stewart Living Magazine last June regarding a bag pattern (Tanya Whelan for Grand Revival - Practical Bag) that you could sew. The link sent me to http://www.fatquartershop.com/ and there I became hooked.
I bought the pattern from FQS but went to my local Joann store to purchase fabric. Ok, that was a stretch to pick out two fabrics in which I thought coordinated! I love the bag and have made a few more for friends and relatives. (photo is of my current bag - this bag is truly yellow but you wouldn't know it with the gray tone to it.)
So now I am starting to grow my own fabric stash full of colors I never thought I would ever be interested in. 1930's Retro fabrics, the gorgeous warm palate of Anna Maria Horner's collections, etc., I could go on. What am I going to do with these fabrics? I have NO idea!
I am looking forward to many more years of creating wonderful clothes, quilts, totes, etc., for myself, friends and family!
P.S. The fabric to the right is for a bag I will make for my sister-in-law who turns the big 40 in a few weeks.
