Birthday stash enhancement

BundleI went to 2 out of the way quilt shops on Saturday to spend my birthday money. The first shop was really cute and had some wonderful displays and nice merchandise, but nothing to entice me. The second shop (that I'd visited before) didn't fail to satisfy - they had many of my favorite lines of fabric and it was hard narrowing my choices. I ended up buying this huge bundle of reproduction fabrics with the intent of doing a sampler quilt down the road. Coincidentally, I later stopped into the shop where my SIL works and one of her coworkerrs just completed a sampler using this same bundle and had it in the shop to find border fabrics for it. I loved Joyce's sampler, but didn't find out until the next day that she had used the same tower of fabrics that I just bought. Sweet.


I also came home to these in my mailbox - they are some of the beautiful Lecien Antique Flower Collection fabrics. I've had my eye on them for a while, but found them for an amazing price at this online shop. Hurry on over to this site if you want some - they are at least $3 per yard less than any other shop I've found them!


  1. Love the fabrics--- I'm jealous....

  2. Reproduction fabrics are my favourite, what a wonderful collection you purchased.

  3. As soon as I wipe the drool off my chin, I will be ordering my very own Lecien fabrics.
    What a haul!

  4. Yeah, those fabrics are very soft and sweet. What a great way to spend your birthday dough!
