Where I buy fabric

I just wanted to let everyone know that I added a new section to my sidebar with links to some of my favorite places to buy fabric. Some are local, some are etsy shops, and some are internet based companies. So if you are looking for a new place to buy, or just look around, check it out.

Also, here is a list of my favorite "sale" sections that always have awesome fabrics at awesome prices.

Fat Quarter Shop

July Fussy-cut Bee

If you stop by here often, you probably have heard that I participate in the Fussy-Cut Bee. Well it's finally my month! Wohoo! Im so excited. I had a really hard time deciding what I wanted to do, so I went with something that I've had in the works for a long time.

Here's what I started out with:
Sneak Peek
Alexander Henry's Starlings bird print for the fussy-cut block centers and coordinating colors taken from the print (red, light blue, lime green, yellow, light pink, dark pink, and black/white.)

And finally decided to go with a wonky log cabin block.

You can find a tutorial over at QuiltDad's for the wonky log cabin.

I am so horrible with anything that's "free-style", so this is a great one for me to have a little help with from my bee members. Im really excited to see what they come up with.

You can see more blocks as they are finished up by my bee members over in our group pool on flickr.
