Fabric Shopping Today

You knew it wouldn't take me long to start fabric shopping again!  But I won't go overboard, I promise.  I fell in love with the print above - so contemporary and fresh.  
And you know I LOVE green!
This stripe is a companion print to the green, so it had to come home with me, too.

I also bought a few fabrics for some of my commission pieces, but they don't count since someone else is paying for them.  It's good to be back in the saddle again.

During the next week, I thought I'd do a tutorial on how I make t-shirt quilts.  I don't make them like most quilters.  Since I have three such quilts in various stages of progress, it seems a good time to explain my technique.  And by the time I finish the tops, my new quilting machine should be here.

Great choices for your first fabric purchases of the new year. Where did you find them?

I love your choices too. Can't wait to their final destination! You did use great restraint on your first real outing of the year.
