Shopping online

I’m a bit of a hermit and hate shopping for the most part so when I can, I shop online. While I tend to shop for bargains, I’m willing to pay full price for the focus fabric for my Quick Strippie quilts and then I usually pull the other two fabrics for the quilt from stash.

I think Fabric.com has the best selection of novelty fabrics ( the kitty fabric from the Strippie I posted today was bought there) so when I needed some pink elephants, I headed over there and found two I like. One will be a gift and one a donation quilt but I haven’t decided which one will be the gift.

Are you noticing a pink theme here in my knitting and quilting? Caleb is going to have a little sister the end of the summer.

    I love the Its a Girl Thing by Michael Miller. I have made a couple of quilts using its boy counterpart. I adore it. It holds up well after washing and my dear friend who received the quilt made from the leftovers from the first quilt takes it out and pets it after 3 years. She is about to have her first grand baby who will be the recipient and the owner of the other quilt is now at the dragging on the floor stage and it still looks good.

    I do all of my shopping for fabric online–or just about–once in a while i go to Joannes or my LQS and find a few things i like–but I like equilter.com and Pink Castle a lot…..hugs, Julierose

    A new grandchild, how very wonderful. Your family looks loving, and loving growing.

    Thanks for the info regarding ordering specialty fabrics. I went back and looked at your info for strippy quilts. It’s just darling and is perfect for my recent guild position coordinating the making of donation quilts, including quilts for the children’s shelter. I get lots of donated fabric, some in large amounts that are kiddo oriented but sometimes I can only find 1-2 fabrics to fill out the making of a quilt. This looks like a perfect solution. I hope it’s okay for me to make up kits and give these instructions to willing guild members to put together.
