Big News!

The snow stuck in Richmond! That's actually not my big news.


The news is that I will be moving to Raleigh! And soon! I was offered a new job, and I decided to take it. I am very excited and verrry nervous for the change. On the bright side, I will have a new apartment to decorate with handmade lovelies! As a reward to myself, I bought..........AMH Good Folks! Omg it is B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L!!!


I came across a fat quarter bundle that had 17 of the original 24 prints. I had never seen that many together in one place. I am still absolutely drooling over it.



My goal, is to find fat quarters of the missing 7 pieces and then make a quilt to showcase the beauty of the fabric. Sooo if anyone has a fat quarter of a missing print that they would like to sell, definitely comment or message me! Haha. But seriously, managing to get the entire collection would be a dream come true.



Obviously I got camera happy, but they are just so pretty! I now have to take a break from my fabric lust and spend a little time this evening planning my move. It all just got very real!

  1. Yay!!! I'm sharing in your excitement over your move! :)

    I so wish I would have gotten this fabric when it was more readily available! Where did you ever manage to find it? I think you should use this fabric for your block so I can at least touch it! :)
