Stash Report 1/29/12

Well.... for all my good intentions.... the quilt shop lured me in.... it enticed me.... but I have a good excuse..... we had to go to Cheyenne.... and it was cold... and windy... and we had to go inside someplace warm.... and the warmth just wore me down.... and so did these little goofs ( brother didn't want to be in the picture)!!




These animal prints were just adorable... little bit asked if we could get them, and middle bit said - oh we could make a strippy quilt, with cool blue borders, and I went - well  OF COURSE!! Lets get the entire line..... oh sheesh.....


And they are so adorable!! We want to start on it right away ( so maybe my stash report will look good NEXT week LOL)


And they had these eagle panels... you all know I adore Fred ( our eagle) so I was just tickled with these... I have no clue how or what I will set around them.... but it will come!
Oh - and all of the above fabrics came from The Quilted Corner in Cheyenne. I am pretty sure if you google them they have an online shop.


and then..... see I was bad.... I ordered a Jelly roll to match my Layer Cake Quilt  and they were having a sale on Layer cakes... can you believe it.... and its all outdoorsy fabrics. I am sure I can find a person who would LOVE these fabrics - at least in my house!!

These came from Green Fairy Quilts.

So - my report - ready?

You're such an awesome parent to force yourself to buy fabrics because your children wanted them! ;)

Gorgeous colors on that bundle.

I love it that your boys want fabric... and think of quilts for you to make! Priceless!

You're training them right...

I bought the cutest frogs on Friday for one of my Quick Strippies! I love how cute they turn out and I'm finding lots of fun novelties these days.

I also have that cute collection of animal prints and since I can no longer remember how I was going to use them I may just have to copy what you and "the bits" do with yours. Thanks for always providing inspiration.

You have been bringing up your boys right. The fabric is too cool, and the quilt is going to be great.

I long ago learned that it is very dangerous to go shopping with either My Guy or Drama Teen. Both are excellent at deciding on something I need to make, for them of course.

Still more out than in, so not a real bad week.

I can see how persuasive those kids can be! I believe I would have caved in and bought also....
