    My Fabric Splurge - I may have overdone it!

Size:  1.55 MBMy LQS is closing and she has 50% off everything this month. Although it makes me very sad, I was happy to take advantage of the sale. I got 2 yard cuts of most of them, a few pre-cut half yards, a jar of girly button (because I think the grand baby will be a girl) and only 1 pattern.
    The 1st pic is a 4 yd cut. It is actually more burgundy and I think it will make a nice jacket.

    I LOVE that top red feathery fabric. I have seen it used in purses with that crinkly texture stuff. It looks amazing. Great haul!

    I really hate to hear about local quilt shops closing. My local shop closed yesterday. Glad you got some good deals though.

    What a beautiful stash. Sorry your LQS is closing. And you are right that first fabric will make a beautiful jacket (I made a purse out of that same fabric).

    Great haul for sure but hate that a quilt shop had to close. We have a new one in town and I am hoping it will thrive. The owner is so helpful and excited about her shop.

    I too feel like I am "picking at the bones" and have a some guilt, when a shop has a going out of business sale. But you did well with your purchases.

    It is always nice to have larger pieces in your fabric stash! Great bargains, but I hate it when fabric shops go out of business.

    What a great haul and such beautiful fabrics! Unfortunately, a lot of quilt shops, local and online, have not been able to stay in business due to the economy. It is sad to see. But I did see one shop recently and the owners had decided to retire instead of being forced out of business- yeah. Enjoy your new fabs.
