I did a little fabric shopping a week ago at a fun little quilt shop and I am going to share my random findings with you.  I just purchased some of what I fell in love with.  I definitely have to refrain myself because I fall in love with a lot of fabrics.

I have been drooling over these Texas napkins by Moda (20" x 20") for several visits and decided to stop drooling and make a purchase.  They are adorable and I will probably use them to make two quilted pillows.  I don't really have a place where they would fit in my home, but I don't care.  I will make them fit!

In continuation with the Texas theme, I found a fat quarter of these cute horseshoes.  I grew up around horses and couldn't resist.  This fabric is Rawhide Horseshoes by Moda.

I also purchased a half of a yard of Tim and Beck Bungle Jungle Elephants in Grey.  I love these elephants and I especially fell in love with the grey and red.  As you can see from the collection below, there are a total of 6 different color variations of the elephant fabric.  It was hard not to buy all 6.

I could not resist purchasing some of the fabrics from Aneela Hoey's Sew Stitchy collection.  I have been really interested in fabrics with birds on them lately.  I have made a couple of fabric purchases since this one and they contain quite a few bird fabrics.  I decided I will have to create a post just about the little birds I have been collecting.

With Christmas coming, I could not resist the red fabric with the birds.  It isn't Christmas fabric, but it would work well in a Christmas project.  I love the sewing pins and the fun hexagons.  The grey in the background is very soft and pretty and works well with the pinks and reds.  Oooh I just love it all!

Here is a collage of all the fabrics in the Sew Stitchy collection.  Aren't they just adorable!

I am sure I have said this before, but I absolutely love Aneela Hoey's fabric collections.  Her other collections are A Walk in the Woods, Little Apples, Sherbet Pips, and her latest Christmas collection, Cherry Christmas. She also has a great blog if you are interested in following her talented works.  Her blog name is comfortstitching and you can find it here:

Have a great day and happy sewing, or maybe I should say happy fabric shopping!



  1. Love those little elephants! Might need to get some of those for myself!

  2. Up here in the NW we had the moda napkins with the Oregon/Washington map on them. I bought several and made pillows for the deck with them! They are so great. They acted as an accent to the other pillows!

  3. Hi, I have just recently found your blog when hunting for some guidance on sewing mitred borders. Your tutorial was simple and easy to follow, so thankyou! I also love the look of your blog, so nice and colourful with a bright clean feel to it. Karen

  4. I'm a huge fan of Aneelas fabrics. I love my bucket made from her sew stitchy line ; ) have fun with it!

  5. may I ask the name of the shop where you got the TX napkin? Etsy came up empty for me, and the only place I found them online only sold in a set of 6. My best friend lives in TX and this would make a great pillow for her living room for Christmas.

  6. I love your blog and the fabrics you choose. I saw you in the find a friend friday of sew many ways.
    I'm a new follower and a new blogger.
    Thank you.
