Look at these pretties that arrived in a box from South Carolina this afternoon. A big thank you to my sister-in-law Robin!!! My Joanns has had the same exact 5 DS Quilts prints since May. I finally broke down and bought a few fqs on Etsy, but then I got the brilliant idea to ask all my family members who live in various locales on the East Coast to check their shops for me. And lo and behold...my sil found 15 of the prints at her Joanns!!!
I am teaching a quilting class (!!!) through Parks and Rec starting in September and plan to use these fabrics as my example. I think it's a nice compromise between designer fabric and affordability, so that students can feel free to shop at Joanns or at the LQS. Quilting can be an expensive hobby! I also happen to follow a blog by an Australian, and DS Quilts has 10 Australian-only exclusive prints in this line. So, we are going to be swapping some fabrics! How exciting!
Well, I plan to do a little sewing in the next two weeks to get items completed for two swaps I am participating in, but other than that, my sewing machine will be kind of quiet. My oldest daughter, Beatrix, starts kindergarten...sniff...and so we are going to commemorate this big step with a vacation to Niagara Falls.
