June 25

It's June 25, and that can mean only one thing - six months til Christmas! And of course, what better day for the postman to bring me yet another package! What was in it? This, of course:

Denyse Schmidt's Hope Valley collection. I think this is out of print now, and like her other collections, is going for big bucks nearly everywhere. I love her fabrics, too, but I'm not willing to part with $114 for a stack of fat quarters, or pay $18 or more for a half yard of fabric! I have other things to think about, like eating, car payment, mortgage payment, electric, you get the idea.

I found this stack of 24 fat quarters on Etsy for $57, which works out to less than $2.50 each!

Ive noticed that these fabrics have a very "1930" feel to them. Individually, there are some in this collection that I don't really like, but I know from past experience that these fabrics usually blend in well with the whole. I might have to see if I can find a bit more of these, or dig in my stash and find a few other 30's repro fabrics that will work for these for the quilt I have in mind. I'm not sure I have enough here to make a full size quilt, and I rarely make a small quilt, which is probably why it takes me forever to make a quilt. That, and the fact that I do have to work.

While trying to take pictures of these lovely fabrics, my loyal photography supervisor felt that he wasn't getting enough attention, so took matters into his own paws:
