I have a super fabric problem. I once read something where they made up this funny acronym that describes me perfectly… SABLE -which stands for… Stash Accumulated Beyond Life Expectancy. (yay!) but as a mom who was a textile designer in the past and who sews literally every day now… I’m still buying.
Though I live very near to downtown LA, time away from the kids is not super realistic for fabric trips very often. I prefer to shop online and have it show up on my doorstep. (as Designing mom Tori notes: “mail is fun!”)
My favorite sites for shopping online are www.quilthome.com
– they both have huge selections and excellent customer service. I’ve also been very pleased with the quality of products I’ve received and the color representation on their websites (though this is subject to personal computer screens as well) is very true.
I recently stumbled onto the Riley Blake “Wheels” designs
and went nuts. I bought what is called a fat quarter bundle and have subsequently made 2 quilts for my boys. Fat Quarter Shop also has some really cute robots
that are calling my yet-unborn nephew’s name (we don’t even know his name yet, but I know he already wants those robots
I’m also in an online quilting bee and recently received a beautiful fabric in one of my project packs that I learned this morning is called…. Woodland Delight by Paula Prass.
I could go on forever, but those are just some things that have been exciting me lately.
