You do have my address for when this is done right?;-). I just love the colors and fabrics...wow this will be gorgeous!
Such a beautiful color combination and how can you ever go wrong if V&Co is in the mix! I'm excited to see this chevron in the large scale too.Does it go together quickly?
Terryt1955 - Yep, I started with the V&Co print and picked other fabrics to coordinate. Our local Ben Franklin is closing so right now their fabric is 30% off. It's hard not to buy up all the V&Co
At 30% go for it! You'll kick yourself if you don't. Plus you don't have to pay for shipping.
Terryt1955 - I got some. When it goes to 40% I'll probably go back and see what's left. They had a surprising amount left so far. They're also still getting new stuff in - not sure how that works...I was able to pick up some fat quarters of Eclectic Elements too
So if they're going out of business does that mean you're not going to have any fabric store nearby?
Terryt1955 - no, we actually have a good dozen within 40 minutes of here that are all great. That's part of the reason I have such a big stash - I go to them and can't resist.
True - it surprises me that there's still so much good stuff left. They have some Kona solids (but no white) that I picked up too. I'll probably keep going back as the % off goes up until they don't have anything left that I'm interested in
How far away from Evanston are you? Maybe it's time I visit my youngest!
Have fun adding to your stash. We had 2 LQS go out of business last year and I tink I went a little overboard. Naw, you can never have too much fabric.
True - tell me about it :moneywithwings: and I really am not exaggerating. They all have their unique character and a couple of them are small (like the one that offered the class with Vanessa) but there are a lot here. Expand out another hour and you're at least double that.
Terryt1955 - we're a little under 4 hours away. We go to the Chicago area on a regular basis. Seriously, if you do visit, let me know.
Drnic2c Unfortunately, I have the same attitude. Now I have to figure out where to store it!
P.S. I just finished a quilt with that same blue flower V and Co. fabric. I love it (and all their fabrics)!
Terrysim - a meetup would be fun wouldn't it! I love the V&Co fabric too and just got to meet Vanessa recently. She's a hoot.
Cool! How did that happen?
This looks awesome...you were fast!!!
COngrats on the finish here. It's beautiful!
Terrysim , does that mean your daughter is a "Wildcat"? Claire graduated last year but she is working in the area still until February.
Terryt1955 - No, my son is there working, went to college in MN. Sure seems like we have a lot on common besides our names!
Oh my goodness - how did I miss this beauty?!?!? Love it...such great, bold colors! And Phoebe is beautiful too :)
This is so bright and pretty! You did a great job on it.
Love it...please wash and dry before you mail it to me ok?;-). And Phoebe is so pretty... Gimli is in love!!
True she's a longhair and I started her as a kitten with baths so she actually tolerates it. I don't subject her to a hair dryer though. Probably freak her out.
Caribousmom Thanks Wendy (& Phoebe says thanks too). I loved that it was such a quick top to make!
Skynme Thank you Erica! It's nice to have a finish so early in the year. Helps motivate me to get more projects done. Now I have to tackle a tote like you did
True She's the only one I ever give a bath too because she really does need it. Nails, however, are another thing. That's a challenge with her. The other one is pretty good about nails but he's more of a dog than a cat (he plays fetch).
Really stunning- love it! Phoebe is too adorable- she has such a "you know you love me" look on her face. We have rescue cats too- they steal your heart!
Love this finish it looks awesome...quilts are cat magnets I swear...Phoebe has very good taste!
Congrats on this finish. It's beautiful!! I'm looking right now at the quilt on my couch made with the same V and Co. blue flower fabric. Love it!!
