More Excuses to Buy Fabric

When shopping for fabric, if a fabric that catches your eye, or just looks interesting, buy some!
If you don't buy it now, it won't be there when you come back. That's my motto. You just never know when it might come in handy for fussycuts ...






Sometimes it can be as subtle as a tiny green worm hiding among the green leaves and vines. I love to put surprises in my quilts.
But really now, do we EVER need EXCUSES to buy fabric!?!

  1. What a great use for the unusual green fabric! I agree, buy it when you see it.

  2. My boxes of fabric I use for applique look like moths have gotten to it...like your green fabric there are strange shapes cut out! No excuse needed here to buy fabric!

    1. Nancy, the Morning Glory block is an older pattern 1980. I designed the bluebirds and border - I have extra pattern sets for a class that never ran. If interested, use the contact form on on my website www.barbaramburnham.com and we will work something out.
