I went for a long time without buying fabric, and it seemed once I started buying some while visiting quilt shops on vacation, I can't stop! It wouldn't be so terrible if I didn't have any fabric, but I have tons of it... I mean tons!!!

I just bought the kit from Joined at the Hip on the cover of American Patchwork and Quilting's Magazine from this past month. It was only $72. I figured by the time I spent gas or tons of time finding the right fabrics on the Internet, it would be worth the $72 to just buy it from them. I am going to Nashville on Thursday, but I want to get fabric for my I Belive quilt while I am there.

Take care!

Hi Rachel: I'll be off to the Post Office shortly to see if my newest purchase is here - 4 glorious yards of den Haan and Wagenmaker's Indienne fabric at half price from Reproduction Fabrics. It will match and complete my ideas for a "sampler" box of their fabrics I acquired at a steal on Ebay!At half price, whio could resist - it's ordinarily about $34 a yard - 60 inches wide. Oh yes, and some piecing thread - have been going through that stuff like a house afire!! Thoroughly enjoyed your post.

Hi Rachel, I haven't visited you before, but have enjoyed reading your posts.
The next best think to shopping yourself is seeing what someone else has purchased. Can't wait to see your new purchases! Liked to fabrics you bought at Joann's.
