Fabric Stash Upgrade!

I seem to browse through Hawthorne Threads endless collection of fabric every other day. Literally. And I've had these in my basket for about a month! How could I have passed these up?! The bright saturated colors just sucked me in, not to mention the fun modern prints! I think the Lamps are my favorite! Wait, no, the guitars...
They are from left to right:
Leaf Dot in Fuchsia by Erin McMorris
Kelly's Lamps in Spice by Michael Miller
Ring Dot in Spice by Michael Miller
Groovy Guitars in Lagoon by Michael Miller
(I think the guitar fabric will be turned into an infant car seat canopy for our little guy... similar to this tutorial. Cute eh? The guitars say "I'm a BOY, but a cool, fun-loving boy." Right?)

This is also from Hawthorne Threads, its called Leaf Path in White from the Dill Blossom Collection. I own very littl mostly-white prints so I thought I'd branch out a bit and go for something out of my usual. I have no plans for this yet, but I'm sure something will come up that it will be perfect for.

Tonight I started THE baby crib quilt! I couldn't decide between two different designs so I'm going to do both... and the quilt will be reversible! I'm quite excited! I'm kind of winging it with both patters as I don't HAVE patterns so I'm just making it up as I go. I'll let you know how it goes.

We're supposed to get 3-6" of snow tomorrow, woohooo!!! Man I love snow! Its the only thing that gets me through wintertime. What have you been up to? Sewing? Quilting? Baking? Snow shoveling?

I have looked at Hawthorne Threads a few times myself. They have great stuff. Love your selection here! In fact, I have a commission job that is to be done in blacks and whites and I think I'll go look for some there.

Yummy, I have those to. I heart Hawthorne Threads

Great fabrics ... I'll check out that shop. It's a nice summer day here today but the next two will be 36 and 38 degrees C - not exactly sure what that is in Fahrenheit but around 100. No snow shovelling in Australia!

Love it for the little guy. Soooo, takes me back to the 70s. Classic colors. I remember, my mom had a refrig. that was avocado green. BOY, glad those are going to the archives of history.

I love Hawthorne Threads too! The color matching feature is awesome! I'm not so in love with snow at the moment though, we're on day 4 or 5 of snow and there's no end in sight...

I love those guitars - I saw them the other day when browsing the web!

If you want to brave the snow JoAnns on Polaris has fat quarters for $0.50 (they are getting a new shipment and getting rid of the ones they have) and all clearance fabric is an additional 50% off. I went last night and added to my stash.

I really like the white leafy fabric. I'm getting ready for a determined effort in this new year and waiting for grand... ta da daughter. Sonogram is showing a future quilterette and due date is next Wed.
