This past weekend, I had the opportunity to spend a day at the Phoenix Quilt Festival. There is limited opportunity to add nice fabrics to my working stash in Flagstaff, so it's a treat to go and see so many wonderful things! I'd been saving up for it and came home with a nice assortment of things like these lovely Valdani Pearl Cotton threads in lovely woodland shades!
There were also a few dealers there with bargain bin priced lace. I ended up with quite an assortment of trims, most for around a dollar!
One of the things I didn't get last year was Ann Cox's lovely A to Z of Ribbon Flowers. All year long, I regretted not having picked it up, so it was my first purchase along with a couple of other lovely books!
My main reason for going to the festival was that I wanted some more batiks in shades of woodland/green. I was able to pick up a nice assortment! I love these! They will be a perfect complement to my current stash and should give me enough fabric to create my woodland quilt!
Then there was this fabric, just for fun, in lovely tropical shades!
A little bundle of rosy red dyed felted wool made me think of hearts... and the lovely rosy/lavender batik would go beautifully!
My surprise purchase was this lovely assortment of wildflower fabrics. They remind me of the gorgeous wildflowers in the Colorado high country that I so enjoy. I debated over and again, and as you can see, eventually decided that they must come home with me! Now to dream up a lovely project to use them in!
