{amylouwho} thankful for fabric

I've wanted to share some gratuitous fabric shots with you so I thought I would do some thankful posts this week.  I really am thankful for fabric and all the possibilities it holds!

Here's some pretties I picked up while in Utah at The Sewing Summit.

I don't get to shop much at shops that have fat quarters, so it was nice to walk through Pine Needles and pick out a stack of fabrics based solely on color! I've been really into orange with aqua lately.  Glad I'm not the only one!

I almost died when I saw Sandi Henderson's Secret Garden fabrics in person at The Material Girls Quilts too.  The fabric itself is SO soft and I couldn't pass up this navy with the bright pinks and greens.

I've finished a project with it this past week that I want to share with you. Soon.  I have enough fabric left over to make something matchy matchy for my girls. (oh and yes, that is some henna in leaf. couldn't resist.)

I got this cute stack from the SLC Modern Quilt Guild dinner, Fox Trails by Shari Butler of Doohikey Designs.

And yes, foxes are the new owls I hear, so I'm glad I'm up to speed on the trend. :) I think the racoons are pretty cute too!

And then cute Leigh from LeedleDeedle Quilts, shared her awesome stack of Fandango that she won from Nadine during the shop hop!

I've wanted some of this for a long time.  Now I just have to decide what to do with it!

What are you thankful for today?

I am also thankful for fabric. But most of all I am thankful that I am able to sit and sew the fabric into wonderful quilts and other things to give away to family and friends!

Oh what gorgeous fabrics. :o) You will have so much fun creating with it. I just loved the shop hop. I had not seen so many beautiful fabrics in person, before! :o)
Have a great week and Happy Thanksgiving!

Grateful we decided to walk next door in the snow to find the Leaf Henna. Grateful you told me about the sale on Henna last week and grateful my two yards just shipped today. Grateful I work in a fabric store and can touch these kinds of pretties all the time, grateful for the internet and how it brings other fabric crazies all together into a happy Henna family. OR you know, whatever other print :)

some great buys. I love the orange and aqua fabrics too. I would have never thought of putting those to colors together.
I am thankful that my daughter has finally gotten a full time job.
