    Hi,

    I thought this would be a cool thread to find out what we buy for our quilting and sewing addiction.

    I went to Joann's Fabric today and used my 50% coupon and bought a pair of those Fiskars snippers for rag quilts. Also bought a yard of white fabric to see if I can make those siggie blocks for the swap here on this board.

    Also stopped by Meijer and purchased 1 quilt magazine and 1 sewing magazine!

    So hubby said that was my belated Valentines gifts, that is fine with me! ha ha

    Since you asked, I happened to buy two Go Diego Go panels to make pillows for my two little grandsons. They are getting Diego jammies, too, but I had to order that fabric online as I couldn't find it here.

    I also bought some tracing paper for marking darts in a top I'm making for me, and a 200 pack of quilting 'straight' pins on sale for 50% off.

    I bought a 14" square rotating cutting mat at Joann's which was on sale, plus I had a 20% coupon. It came to about $16 with tax.

    Shhhh...don't tell! ;)

    I bought 17 yards of ribbon (all I could find needed more) a yard and a half of Thomas the Train fabric, a yard of Tinkerbell fabric, and 14 bath towels. oh and a fat quarter.

    I think I am going to use the Thomas the Train fabric for the backing on a Salina Yoon activity quilt train set thing that I am making for my middle ones birthday. Tinkerbell will one day turn into fussy cut centers for a wonky log cabin. oh and the list gets longer! lol

    I did not buy anything quilt related today. But I did buy on Sunday night at JoAnn's. I bought 2 yard of warm and natural batting, 2 yards of interfacing- light and medium, 10 yards of their cuddly flannel fabric in baby prints- cars, dinos, flowers, bears, dots, etc; thread, yarn (oops that is not quilting but knitting which I also do). I use the flannel for quilts, bibs, blankies and spit cloths. Love the stuff :)

    I bought whole new batch of thread based on the wonderful advice provided by all of the experts out there. Bought a wonderful dragon panel and some batiks, now I have to come up with a pattern that will be suited to this oriental theme. Any suggestion??

    were you watching me, I was supposed to go to my block of the month demo but didn''t because we have such poor driving conditions from all the snow and ice. I went to a closer quilt shop and bought some background fabric for a quilt I am working on because I didn't like how the original fabric looked.

    I didn't buy anything today, but am expectinb a goodsized package fro fabric.com tomorrow. More red, white and blue for DD's quilt. Next week I have a class at my lqs, so I know I wont get out of there without a "little" something. Actually I want to get a good selection of flannel fat 4s. I want to make a few baby quilts to have on hand for when my DD does the giving tree next Christmas. There are always babies on the list, so I want to be prepared. Then there is always Mary Jo's. I have been drooling over some the beautiful batiks that she has. One of these days I will loose the battle for self control and break down and order some.

    I am staying home today, but yesterday I had my first quilting class. I bought material to make a lap quilt which I will start in class next week.

    I also bought some very pretty blue shimmery fabric that I have no idea what to use for, but couldn't resist.

    I have to get to Joanne's and use my 50% off coupon. Not sure what I am buying yet!

    Funny you should ask! I scored from Craig's list. I was after fabric by the pound but the lady in front of me bought it all! The nerve of her to send two men to do this. She wasn't even there to go through it! They were bigger than me so I kept my mouth shut. But . . .

    10 Omnigrid rulers 8 of which I didn't have, two cutting mats 23x36" and 18x23, three rotary cutters of different sizes (olfa and fiskar), pins, needles (schmetz), rotary blades (olfa), seam rippers (never can have to many!), and two beautiful quilt tops. One is layered and pinned ready to be quilted. All for $100.

    I bought 3 yards each of 2 different colors flannal from Joannes. Red and white. I am sure I will find something to do with it. And like a true quilter in training I could not pass it up for $2.00 a yard :)
