For better or worse, I ended up at Rachel Griffith’s blog, p.s. i quilt, and read about Hope Valley, a fabric line by Denyse Schmidt for Free Spirit.
I have seen this fabric line a few times before, but this time when I saw it I got itchy fingers. You see, this time I saw the fabric, I had a quilt that is in the works that needed just the right fabric. Also, this time when I saw the fabric I overlooked the orange and bright pink.
This time when I saw the fabric, I got itchy fingers. Do you know that feeling? I’m sure I’m not alone. It’s that feeling that the stars have aligned, that the perfect fabric has been paired up with the perfect pattern and you just can’t wait to get started. You get that, “I need that fabric NOW!” feeling that doesn’t pass until you have the fabric in your fingers (or at least on its way to your fingers).
Thank goodness there are quilt shops that are open at midnight. I ended up at Pink Chalk Fabrics where I could buy the fat quarter bundle without the orange and pink. The other good news — I am in Utah, and they are in Washington so I should have Hope Valley in my hands tomorrow!
It all my fingers fault. When they get itchy, I can’t wait to get to my sewing machine. Thanks a lot Rachel — for giving me the itchy fingers!
