I've been doing quite well, staying out of the quilt shops, or holding my purse close to me while in stores. It's not that I don't want to stimulate the economy, it's just that every time I buy a new piece or a few new pieces of fabric, my head starts spinning with ideas and I tend to lose focus on current projects.
But I needed binding, really, I did. It's what I went into the store for, it's the section I went right too. I didn't waver..........and then Lee pulled out this bolt of fabric and waved it at me from across the store and I lost all control.
Who wouldn't? Seriously, could you have resisted this focus print? Really? I couldn't and I bought 2 yards of it, and now my mind is spinning with ideas.
I went back to the museum in Bellingham Sunday and spent an hour soaking in the amazing quilts that are on display. I sketched a couple of them and also spent quite some time admiring the hand quilting on some applique quilts. There were some pieces in a LoneStar that were very similar to this focus fabric I just bought.
