Carnival & Fabulous Fabric

Hello and Happy Friday!!! Woo Hoo ... the weekend is here and it's a long one!!!

Last week while shopping with my cousin i purchased this pure yumminess ... don't ask me why, but i luv this fabric in these colors ... and it's soooo not me :O)

And here is the perfect pattern to make in just these two colors!!! (i purchased the pattern last week too :O)
I also purchased more cuts of kansas troubles which i am absolutely addicted to.

So here is what i have decided ... my 2012 resolution will be to purchase no fabric except if I need it to finish a quilt like backing or binding ... and in 2012 all the quilts i make will be made from my stash ... ugh ... it sounds good now, but we'll see how good i do when they come out with all those fabulous fabric lines :O) The one thing i'm afraid of ... i'll stock up on even more fabric before 2012 arrives! Oh, such problems!!

Have a wonderful 4th of July everyone!

Sounds like a good plan Lisa! I hope you can stick to it and maybe inspire the rest of us to do it too, lol.

Have a great 4th!!

The fabric you bought looks really great. Me too, I like those two colours together! And I´m looking forward seeing you making this quilt pattern.
