    A "quick trip" to one of my favorite fabric stores turned out to be a lot of fun, but more costly than I expected. I had a $20 gift card that I was going to spend. That's ALL I was going to spend.... yeah, right! Well, I tried!! Everything I bought was at least 40% off, and some of it was 60% off. My total (AFTER the GC) was just under $85. However, I earned another $20 GC, so it was not TOOOOOO bad! :wink: :roll: :lol:

    Glad you like it, Henry! I bought it at Quilting Adventures, here in the Richmond, VA area.

    Thanks, Brenda! The top 2 red fabrics are for a heart project. The other red is to finish up one I started ages ago. I am thinking maybe purses/bags with the flower and plaid fabrics. I have no idea what I will do with the others, but I loved them and had to have them (especially at 60% off!). :)

    Thanks for sharing. It is always motivating to me to hear/see what others are doing. I haven't tried any bags yet but I've been thinking about it....maybe this spring.....

    I love the daisy one too--but I'd not have a clue what to do with it. I can't wait to see what you decide.

    Great haul!! :D

    THat's some nice fabric. The blue and yellow plaid reminds me of fabric I used for a purse I made about 5 years ago. I carried it for a while, then sold it in a yard sale to my cousin's little girl! LOL! I had to sell it really cheap bc I would've felt so guilty if I hadn't! hehe

    Ohhh, I LOVE that fabric. I know what you mean. Anytime I go into a quilt shop with a set spending limit...I end up coming out of there more than double what I wanted to spend...lol. But, it's always worth it.

    I love LOVE the reds. I really like the fabrics like the blue flower one, because you can use the ends AND the middle. Can't wait to see what you do with these!

    Oh, I just love the daisy fabric. I've been thinking of buying some. It is Maywood Studios fabric. I just made a quilt with the Fuschia flowers by them.

    Just for fun, here's the website that has patterns for this fabric.

    http://www.animas.com/AnimasPublishing.html

    They have three pages for the Daisy fabric.
