Loose Threads: Fabric Enhancement at Tennessee Quilts

Fabric Enhancement at Tennessee Quilts

Here are the fabrics that I bought at Tennessee Quilts.  I had been on a fabric diet for awhile before this trip.  Most of what I bought was either Kaffe Fassett or Phillip Jacobs.  I wanted to make sure that I have plenty of the brights to finish my Hearts and Flowers quilt by Kim McLean, and I stocked up to do her Stars and Sprigs coming out soon (I hope). 
I bought florals:

A few stripes:
Some dots:

The paisley jungle :
Some Phillip along with blue aboriginal dots:
This one because I thought it might come in handy sometime:

A bit of this and that:
And I also bought Kaffe's newest book :

 Today is September 26.  I know you don't want to be reminded, but 3 months from today will be the day after Christmas.  This is the time of year when I wish that I had started sewing Christmas presents in the spring and summer.  Here's a photo of the inside of the Christmas shop at Biltmore Estate.  Hope you are taking time to stitch today!!!

The fabrics are just delicious, aren't they!? I've got to overcome my fear of them! LOL Like you, I'm anticipating the Stars and Sprigs pattern, and I already have Roseville burning a hole in my applique basket!!
I can't wait to see how you cut these!

Yummy fabrics and a great range too. Won't be long to wait for the other pattern. I haven't seen Christmas decorations out yet but it will be very soon.

Had to giggle when you said "This is the time I year when I wish I had started sewing Christmas presents in the spring and summer." You have lots of company in that!

Pretty, pretty fabrics. Doesn't it feel like Christmas every time you bring home new fabrics?

WOW! You really hit the jackpot. Everyone is prettier than the next. It's so fun to mix and match all that Kaffe fabric. Enjoy!

Jeanne said...

Quite the contrast to your Dear Jane fabrics! LOL I'm sure you'll make something gorgeous with them.
