I meant to behave...
Okay, who am I kidding, I didn't even try to be good. I went to the NQA show last week in Columbus on the hunt for Kaffe Fassett fat quarters and boy did I score!!
I came home with 40 Kaffe Fassett/Phillip Jacobs/Brandon Mably Westminster Fabrics. And I got a 2 yard piece of this....
it was marked down at Quilt Trends and was the end of the bolt.
Now I do have plans for this fabric. In fact I have plans in my head for at least 3 quilts. First, off I want to finish my Swoon blocks - I need 2 more. And then there is a string pieced quilt I saw that used Kaffe fabrics and black and white prints - love it. And then there is a 36 patch block variation that is talking to me too. Hopefully if I get all these tops made I will put a dent in my Kaffe/Phillip/Brandon stash. Right now it is escaping the bonds of its little (24 quarts is little isn't it?) plastic bin. My goal is to use enough of the fabrics to get the lid to snap on. I have no illusions that I will use all of them up, heck - I don't want to use all of them. They are so pretty that I need to have some around just to pet and admire.
PS- I've found in general that it is more fun to misbehave than behave at quilt shows so something like this is bound to happen again.
