Folded (fabric)

My birthday present. 

FQ bundle of Daisy Cottage by Lori Holt 
A stack of folded fabric. 



I have a fabric closet that rivals a small quilt shop. I do NOT need fabric. In fact, after tracking my stash for a year through Judy L's Stash Challenge, I realized that I don't need to buy any fabric. Ever. Again.  But of course, I do and will, but not at the speed and tenacity that I used to accumulate it. I mean, collect it. :)

And I have done very well these last 3 years. I've purchased fabric, but not very much.  And this year I could count on 2 hands the amount of yardage purchased by me.  Until...

I stumbled on Lori Holt's blog, Bee in my Bonnet. And saw her latest line of fabric, Daisy Cottage. And I   As in, I want the whole line! I love her patterns. It kind of shook me up because I haven't felt that way about fabric for a while, to the point of wondering what was wrong with me! hahaha  

Never fear. I'm fine.  I did show patience by asking for it for my birthday instead of rushing out and buying it. By the way, the grays are showing up a bit on the brown side. Sorry--was kind of a yucky day outside and was hard to get a good picture. But it is gray, pink, and gold mostly. 

{oops, I just looked at that stack and 3 Moda Marbles jumped right into that stack!  They hid themselves pretty well!  A light pink, light blue and hot pink. See them?  just trying to blend in.}  *cwazy fabwics.*

I know exactly how you feel - I could retire today - make nothing but scrap quilts for 5 years or more and still not use it all. mmm - an addiction do you think?? but lovely fabrics you chose to fall in love with.

I love them! I wish fabric was as low priced here as with you. At 25$ a yard, it's no fun buying a series. Buying a FQ is my idea of a spree. And I enjoy it as much as you do I think! ;-)
