The probem with being a fabric buyer... that I want all of the fabrics in our stores.

For instance, today I went into our Northgate store on business, not planning to buy anything.

But then I see these fun new arrivals from Robert Kaufman. Owls, whales, lime greens and hot pinks - these are a few of my favorite things! So I have fat quarters cut from them. (Did you know that our stores will cut you fat quarters of pretty much any quilting fabric you want?)

But of course, there are other fabrics that match these so well, I need to get fat quarters of them, too. So I leave, an hour later, with 17 fat quarters. 

SEVENTEEN!  Aren't they so pretty, though? So now I'm looking for the perfect project for these.  I'm thinking of the "Magical Mystery Tour" Quilt.

It requires 20 fat quarters, though.  I guess I'll have to head back in for more!

Those Pesky Fat Quarters! Once you get two or three, they start breeding like rabbits. Cute Cottony Rabbits that are so enjoyable.
