During all the 'fun' of creating, I was notified by Lee at Freshly Pieced Modern Quilts (one of the blogs that I follow and periodically link to) that I had won a $25 gift certificate to Pink Chalk Fabrics. If you have never checked out Lee's blog, it's worth your time. She is creative, posts frequently, and loves fabric. Check her out. Often.
Who doesn't like hearing that they have won free stuff -- particularly at an online fabric shop. Now, in reality, I had never heard of Pink Chalk Fabrics but I had loads of fun deciding how to spend my money. You know the drill -- notions? blenders? sale fabric? something really special? All very important questions. By all means, if you haven't shopped at Pink Chalk Fabrics, it's worth a look. Great fabrics. Good prices. Good selection.
I finally decided on two cuts of children's fabric that I can use in my baby quilts for the local hospital. To maximize my spend, I went with good fabrics that were in the sale section. I adore them. Check out this fabric --
This is a Moda from Japan with the absolutely cutest selvage I have ever seen. Look at those little bunnies. Tell me you have seen anything cuter in a selvage!
I am happy to say that I have not gotten on the selvage bandwagon. I regularly admire the art created by those who are selvage lovers. It's one of the few quilting bandwagons that I haven't jumped on and I remain committed to staying away from it. But, these little selvages are too cute to throw away. So, if you are a selvage lover and would like a set of "bunnies" -- I'm happy to tear an inch down the side and send a set to the first three folks who send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. They are just too sweet not to be put to good use or at least admired by someone who loves selvages.
I hope you are finding fabric that makes you happy!
