Fabric Frenzy

So much pretty fabric arrived on my doorstep on Monday! Happy times. What's best, I've only had to pay for one yard out of 12.5 and two charm packs! I love fabric parcels, even more so when they've been sponsored by others. I love them so much and they're integral to my next big projects, so I just had to share.

The first parcel contained lots of Ready, Set, Go! which will be converted into quilts for a baby and his toddler brother. The fabrics are lovely to look at and I literally can't wait to start working with them this weekend. The stars are from a different line and I've planned to use them for the binding to add a (even more) whimsical touch.


The second parcel came from the Fat Quarter Shop, like the first. Side note: I just love how neatly and beautifully they pack their parcels. It's a shame to open them instead of just hugging them close to your body in their arranged beauty. What you're saying? That's just me? Oh well..

The parcel contained some Aneela Hoey and several organic prints, which I don't have specific plans for as of yet, but they've been on my radar for a while and when my mum offered to feed my fabric addiction buy me some fabric I jumped at the opportunity to get my greedy little fingers on them. My first charm packs, too!

The final parcel contained a yard of Flea Market Fancy, Grey Eyelet. It's the only print that really intrigued me, but it has done so ever since I started reading quilting blogs and with the fabric selling like hot cakes, I had to make sure I'd get them.

With these latest arrivals I've finally got all the fabrics that I intend to use in our wedding quilt top. Lots and lots of Echo which I got for Christmas, some Secret Garden, some Little Apples, and the FMF Eyelet.

I still have to get some fabric for the backing, but I'm in no rush (yet). Actually, I'm considering to print one or two pictures of us at Spoonflower to sew into the backing, as a special and semi-secret detail. Do you have any experience with Spoonflower? Or printing (lasting) pictures onto fabric?

Wishing you a good week!
