I really really wish I had your shops available! I'm so jealous! I do like your choices for the LC borders...they look great. I might just have to sneak to NY and swipe that Red Rooster fabric and I think I'll root around in your entire stash while I'm there...you have great taste!

Forget about prices. You love it, buy it. It's not like you're buying 10 yards a day or forgetting retirement and college plans. I know you are good with money, so treat yourself every now and then. Frugal is wonderful, but we can break away every now and then. Get right back on it though! LOL! Call me cheap, but let's have some fun at the old folks's home!

Well, Miss Karla, it looks like you have been having a grand old time out fabric shopping recently!!! I love all your buys and I think you did great with your border fabrics for your LC-can't wait to see it all finished.

Oh ... you did good to stick by what you needed. I get so side-tracked by all the beautiful fabrics on a shop hop.

I am curious as to what your black and white will look like. You have bought some nice pieces for it this time. I saw one quilt in those colors I might have to make myself.

The border fabric is perfect for your watercolor log cabin quilt. Good eye!
Alex anderson say's you don't quit buying fabric for a quilt until you are finished with it. I like her thinking ... LOL!

Your new fabric is awesome. I really love that floral print. It's one of my downfalls. I can't leave fabric like that at the fabric store.

My philosophy is: buying fabric makes us feel good, feeling good helps us make others feel good, making others feel good is what life is all about. Therefore, it is our RESPONSIBILITY to buy fabric whenever we darn feel like it. :mrgreen:

Those florals are fabulous, I can see why you had to buy them. The log cabin is getting better and better, can't wait to see it finished.
