Window Shopping

Shopping is totally the last thing I ought to be doing right now, but it sure is a fun distraction! I've been doing quite a bit of window shopping at some of my favorite fabric shops this week, and I've found some gorgeous fabrics that I'm having a hard time resisting, like....


This adorable print from Ed Emberley's new Happy Drawing collection, at Hawthorne Threads, which my son would go crazy over! Maybe I'll get some to make him a new pillowcase. The Ed Emberley prints make me smile so big, remembering how I'd pore over his drawing books as a kid.


I am totally loving Indie by Pat Bravo for Art Gallery Fabrics, at Intrepid Thread, too. I love the colors, especially the teals and yellows!


Have you seen Oh Deer by MoMo for Moda Fabrics, at Intrepid Thread? How cute! I love MoMo's as a fabric designer. Her Wonderland collection is one of the first fabric collections I fell in love with as a new quilter, and I absolutely adore my Half Moon Modern quilt, Modern Halves. I love the bright palette in this collection. If you shop this weekend, you can use coupon code TAKE10 to take 10% off any purchase at Intrepid Thread!


This darling print from Oliver + S's Ladies Stitching Club, perfect for a sweet little girl's dress or top, at Intrepid Thread. I'm pretty sure this print is feedsack inspired, and I love the modern feel of this deep fuschia.


Can you ever have enough chevrons? I love this yummy bundle of tonal chevrons by Riley Blake, at I Don't Do Dishes. These are such handy stash prints!
You can also stock up on Violet Craft's amazing Madrona Road collection at I Don't Do Dishes right now for 20% off, with coupon code MADRONAROAD. I adore this collection, and the memoir print is my current favorite, after having worked with it so much in my Mariner's Star mini for Sewing Summit (full reveal coming up this week!!)


Jay McCarroll's newest collection, Center City, for Free Spirit Fabrics is out, and you can find it at Pink Castle Fabrics. Jay has such an amazing sense of color, and I love the modern art feel of his prints. I also love that. Pink Castle's sale fabrics are an extra 10% off this weekend, too, with coupon code SALE10.


And I'm loving this gorgeous bundle of Berry Kona Cotton fat quarters at Pink Castle Fabrics. That purple is gorgeous! Purple is the color I have the least of in my stash, so this might just sneak its way into my shopping cart :)


My new favorite text print from Mama Said Sew by Sweetwater for Moda Fabrics, found at Pink Castle Fabrics. I adore this print, it hearkens back to the fantastic dictionary print Sweetwater did in their Authentic collection, which is amazingly hard to find now. I love this new version of the dictionary print even more. This is the kind of print I would absolutely love to own an entire bolt of!

I also found some Half Moon Modern charm packs, still available at Christa Quilts! I adore Half Moon Modern, I wish Moda would decide to reprint it. Those little scissors put a huge smile on my face every time I use them. Today only at Christa Quilts, all Kona solids are 10% off!

I hope you're having a wonderful Saturday so far! I'm hoping to make some progress preparing templates and fabric for my trip to Salt Lake this week, and maybe even to get started on a new pattern that I've had in mind since Spring Market. Fingers crossed! Have a great day :)


  1. Well thank you for that, now I'm wiping puddles of drool off my keyboard... See you Thursday!

  2. Thank you for this lovely window shopping spree! :-)
    I'm constantly window shopping, I have neither space nor time for so many fabrics and projects. I commited myself to a strictly no buying except for a new project, and then only after having finished my ongoing projects - the only exception are my handsewing hexies. It's hard sometimes, but it works for me.


Thank you for leaving a comment for me! I appreciate each and every one of them and try to respond when time allows. Your comments totally brighten my day :)

Welcome! I'm Elizabeth, mom to a mood teen boy and a chatty six-year-old girl and I sew for my sanity. Let's get to quilting, shall we?
