Look At All the Stripes

Because you can never have enough cat pictures in your blog: I present Pokey with yet more fabric.
Monday I hit two different quilt shops and bought fabric (with apologies to my sweetie). Bright fabrics with white, plus a new blue that hadn't been there before (but I am still cursing the fabric manufacturers for such a poor representation of that color in their fabrics this year and the fact that I have TONS of blues but they are all far away with the rest of my stash) and the black fabric with buttons because darnit I guess there are going to be novelty prints in there after all and at least it's quilting related fabric, sorta.

Look at all the striped fabric. Rather unbelievable and that's several different manufacturers represented there. I'll cut them all with the stripe, rather than against. Some of these are more pastel than I'd usually go for, but what the heck. I just really like that darn brassiere fabric in the bottom center of the pic - I think it's a hoot.

I never have enough time on the computer these days - I just seem to be taking a holiday from it I guess. I have loads of links to give you, but that will have to wait for another post, or else Pokey is going to nip me again. She's very insistent these days, not to mention fussy. She's gotten tired of the treats she was eating and now wants something new. What baby wants, baby gets.

Gorgeous collection of strips and dots. I have the white fabric with polka dots. It's a really fun print.

Now this is the kind of "white" I'd expect you to choose. Wonderful finds.

Great fabrics! I love the black and colored one in the lower right corner.

I love your fabric grouping! Isn't it amazing how, wherever we go without fabric, somehow we seem to acquire it? =)

yep, you found some that I own as well-the black jigsaw fabric-one of the border fabrics for the quilts I am now cutting for. I also have a lot in purple batik with the jigsaw shape on it...yummy. well done Ton, more fabric was a must.

I love the stripes in the bottom right hand corner of Pokey's photo and, yes, that brasserie fabric is a hoot. What would you use it for?

Pokey is the perfect fabric model! Maybe one of the fabric companies would hire her. Sure would sell a lot of fabric, n'est pas?!!

All of your bright fabric are changing my mind on what fabric I am going to purchase next month at IQF in Chicago.

Can Pokey come shopping with me?

I have a couple yards of the bra fabric too. Why did I buy it? No clue.

Stripes are always an excellent fabric purchase. You never know when you will see the colorway again and you can gets some pretty cool effects sewing with them. If you can bear to cut into them, that is.
