    Ok, so I can't really pass up a bargain, even though I really shouldn't be wasting *cough* -investing- my money on fabric.

    These are some of my most recent purchases:


    These fabrics are for a quilt for my brother's son, who should be born in March, I think. I will eventually get around to this one.

    These two fabrics are for the border and backing of my D9P, which I have finished the top for! yay!

    I picked up this christmas fabric for 50 cents... it's a bit less than a meter, and the solid colours on the side were 2 bucks a meter.

    I'm not sure what I'm going to do with these two, but I think they're gorgeous together so I bought them. Heck, at 5.99/m, I can't really go wrong, right?

    These are going to be another D9P with the birds, I think it's ging to be soo cute!

    This is giraffe printed chenille, it's so soft it practically melts in my hands!!!! It's going to cover my sofa throw pillows

    Oh ya, all the solid coloured fabric was 2 bucks a meter.


    I forgot to take pics, but I got another piece of really thick chenille for a buck fifty for over 2 meters because it was "damaged" -basically it was a bit dirty, came right out in the wash!!!!



    Yikes, the pics are huge, sorry!

    The pieces for the back of the d9p are great! Love the chenille too. Always feels good to get a bargain.

    In-store Canadian, eh, I own some of that stuff, too. My first quilt used that same Winnie-the-Pooh and I fussy-cut the pictures to make block centers. It's kind of fun to see what someone else will do with the same stuff, so be sure to post pictures!

    Nice "investment"! :) I love the Asian fabrics. Whatever you decide to do with them I'm sure it will be beautiful. And, I love the colors in your D9P. Great choices for the backing and border fabric. Looking forward to seeing more pics. Good job!

    Not bad, just ambitious! :mrgreen: The fabric for your D9P is perfect! Be sure to post pics when you finish putting the borders on.

    I, too, love the colors in the d9p. Turquoise is my very favorite color and it just drew me in.

    All of your selections are terrific. Let us see what you do with them.
