    Nice choices - I like the ergonomic seam ripper, too - easier on the hands.

    Wow such lovely fabrics....would you mind if I asked a personal question......approximately how much do you pay for a yard of fabric in the states on average???

    Here in Spain we pay about 12-18 euros per yard, I think that is expensive, would you mind disclosing what you have to pay over the pond, so I can be even more envious of all your lovely patchwork shops!! :wink: :wink: :)

    Here where I live in Texas, I think a pretty average price at the quilt shop is $9 a yard...sometimes a little more sometimes a little less. Some of their batiks and licensed fabrics can get pricey. I found some on sale at JoAnn's yesterday for $3 a yard. It was a white on white that wasn't too flowery, so I bought what was left on the bolt. :)

    Sandpat, color me green with envy. I love all the fabrics you chose! Especially the ones with the little stars.

    :D :D :D The fabrics were sampler packs of fat quarters in their clearance section-- just a bit over $1.00 each which I thought was a real bargain!

    At my regular "quilt" shop (it isn't...its just a Bernina dealer with some nice quality fabric), a yard will usually go for $8.95-$9.95 for their "better" quality. They don't have many sales..I shop there some to support them and hope that they will stay open. Its the only nice quality fabric store within 1 hour driving distance for me :cry: But...I DO LOVE to shop on the internet!! :oops:

    When you make something with them, start the post with "Remember those fat quarters...." :D

    I LOVE what I got. It was in my hands last time I went to this shop, but I put it back--so I went back in today and got it with 2 solids to match!

    Love the colors and designs of those fat quarters. Fabric shopping is addictive (whether in person or on the net!!) Went to a new quilt shop on Saturday in Louisianna, MO with my hubby, he is very indulgent of me and quilting. In fact I usually spend more $$ when he is around. He is very good at coordinating colors and will tell me to get plenty to make a quilt. I would be happy with a 1/2 yard or so but I usually buy 2-3 yards if I really like it as well in case it might be used for a border. I really am the lucky one!!!

    Beautiful fabric! Sometimes I just get mesmerized looking at them! I just wish there was some way to have a "screen saver" for the back of my eyelids so I can look at whole roomfuls, close ups or quilts at my leisure!

    Izy, here in Newfoundland, to get the nice fabrics, you can spend anywhere from $10-18 per metre!!! Lately I have been going the online route and I don't know why I didnt' do it sooner!

    Your fabrics are beautiful. I just got their new catalog and was admiring some things in it. After seeing what you bought, I think I'll send in an order. Thanks for making up my mind for me! Have fun with your new stash.

    Joy oh day, I love the fabrics in the first photo, those are my kind of fabrics.

    But I must say that the Connecting Threads are my favorite by far..... 1200yds to a spool of 100% Egyptian Long Staple Cotton, no lint, no fuzz no knots.... I could do a commercial for them! Every quilt board I go to I sing the praises of Connecting Threads Essential threads.... and when you buy the sets they run under $16 for 10 spools. Geesh, other quality threads run $8 a spool!

    You did great!
