A couple of weeks ago, I read on one of the quilting blogs I follow that Hancock's of Paducah was having a serious sale on a recent collection by one of my favorite fabric designers, Fig Tree & Co. I seriously love her stuff! Anyway, the fabric was on sale for 53% off or $5.98/yard!!! I bought 13.5 yards worth and 2 charm packs for $5.98 each (since the charm packs are normally $10 each this was a steal). What a bargain!
I did not buy any of the blue fabric. I'm not sure why, but it just did not fit in my vision of this quilt. I'm planning on making the Elizabeth quilt from Miss Rosie Quilt Co. It's an older quilt pattern - coming out in the spring of 2005, but I love it and I think this collection will be perfect for it! I just love the colors.
Obviously, I won't have time to make this until this summer when I'm not in classes, but I want to work on it now. I'm that happy with the fabric. I think it will make a perfect quilt for the back of the couch this winter.
What do you think?
