recent fabric purchases

this will be a photo dump of fabric I have gotten over the last little bit.

Lets start with a trip the walmart 40 min from here that has fabric.
 Did you know that walmart has free patterns? I got these fabrics to go with the below pattern.

next up is a trip to Ikea! If you havent figured out- I kinda like that place :)

just look at these cute veggies!
 In the "As Is" section I found this duvet cover and pillow case. I think this is a full. maybe.
 and a close up. I love this pattern- look at that!

And now the mega load!!

two friends and I went on a day tip to go fabric shopping. I had a babysitter for the day- We just had to be back by 2:30 for someone dentist appointment. 

We went first to a large store- Mary Jos in Gastonia. This is over an hour away and we wanted to be there for 9am meaning we had to leave home at 8! luckily my ride was able to bring my sitter over with her :) Thanks MC!
This was followed by a quick stop at Hobby Lobby (bought nothing there), lunch at OCharleys and then half way home to the previously mentioned Walmart for more my priced fabric!

Look at this haul!
 Reminients on sale! and most were full yards and a bit!
 These I got from Mary Jos
 Panel from Mary Jos- Panels can be a life saver!
 I think this matches the nursery well. Maybe Zeke will get another quilt!
 I found the panel that I used for Ryan and Christine baby gift with matching fabric.
 Some Thomas fabric for Zeke who is getting into trains.
 I got 9! yards of fabric for the back of Daves moms quilt. The pinwheels and ivory piece are part of the quilt that I made too much of!
 I have decided that I like stripes for binding.
So there you go!

I put this away and decided that I have too much fabric unorganized on my shelf. so after getting the current quilt off to the quilters and the backing done for daves mom and off to the quilters I am going to pull it all off the shelves and reorganize it. now to find a way to get it sorted out!
Maybe I will even show you a picture!

OMGosh!!! You totally have a haul there! I wish our Walmart still sold fabric. I used to buy some really nice pieces there. I will have to be on the hunt for the Thomas fabric. My little two year old grandson is totally obsessed with Thomas!! Great stash haul! I could just fondle all day. Drooling here! HUGS
