Moderate Success

I went shopping today to get some fabric for Sadie's play quilt.  I found something similar to what I was looking for.  

Her due date is six weeks from today.  Surely I can do this! 

I'm just going to have to explore the shops online and start purchasing from them.  My local (and by local I mean 30 miles away) store is a Hancock Fabrics, and it has what I used to think was a pretty good selection til I started following quilting blogs and saw all the wonderful collections that are available!  There's also a JoAnn's next to the Hancock, but it's mostly craft stuff, just a little fabric.  

However, I do like to rummage around in the remnant bin at Hancock.  This is what I came up with today.  

The blue puppy dog fabric is flannel, and the pink chick material is fleece.  There is almost a yard of the fleece and I'm sure I can come up with something to do with that for Sadie.  If nothing else I'll make her a little blankie to snuggle with and later to drag around behind her or use on her dolls.  

Please check my right sidebar for all the wonderful blogs I link to!!

And you can now also follow me on Facebook and Etsy!!


  1. They look so pretty! And I love looking through remnant bins. That's probably where half my fabric comes from. My closest fabric stores (other than Wal-mart which only counts in a real pinch) is 1 1/2 hours away, so I'm buying more and more online. has great prices on good quality fabric. It's always marked down a dollar or two from the list price and if you're not super particular and look in their sale section they have a lot of fabric for $6 or less (which is cheap for quilt shop quality fabric.)

  2. Excited to see what you come up with!

  3. Great stash! Love to see what you come up with!
