Better than flowers : :

Since March when I began to sew, my husband has learned when it comes to gift giving that unless it is something from here, I would much, much rather be receiving fabrics than flowers. So...

Happy Valentine's Day to me!!!
Valentine's Day Fabrics
All of these beauties are from Quilt Home, one of my very favorite places to shop fabrics! Since my fabric stash is very lacking in purples, when I spotted Kate Spain's Central Park I put it on my must have list right away -- there is not a print I do not like in the entire collection, so I thought this was a good start. The top fabric is an Amy Butler print that I thought matched up well and would bring in some more of that wonderful shade of blue.

I always try to pick up a little of Anna Maria Horner's Little Folks Voile here and there when I can. I still do not have the complete collection, but will hopefully soon.
More Voile
The voile is going to be paired with these Folksy Flannels to make one or two baby blankets. It is such a beautiful quality flannel.

And finally, a couple Good Folk prints, too -- right there in the center. This collection I am always re-stocking. I don't want to think of the day when I don't have any!

One of the very best things about shopping at Quilt home is their specials section -- the deals there change daily and always include a fantastic price on a print on my list. It's wonderful, but dangerous too! Thank God for holidays!

Lucky you! I just found your blog from the photo here that was listed in the "good folks" group page on flickr. I'm now a follower of your blog. It's good to know others can be so happy about AMH fabric. I'm pretty much obsessed. :)

Ha ha - I've forwarded this to my husband, who claims I'm difficult to shop for. Fabric, of course! Blog looks great. Looking forward to seeing more!
