I know, I know … I said I wasn’t going to buy anymore fabric until I finished some UFO’s, but I *needed* to buy some backing and binding fabric to finish a couple UFO’s. So yesterday I went to my favorite fabric store and found this cute 1-yard remnant. Isn’t it perfect for St. Patrick’s day? It’s by David Textiles and was only $1.98! I’m thinking of making a small table topper with it.
I also found this ADORABLE print by Darlene Zimmerman … red is my favorite color! It was also $1.98/yard so I splurged and bought two yards. Not sure what I’m going to do with it, but I just couldn’t pass it up.
Did I say that M & L Fabrics (in Anaheim, CA) is my favorite fabric store? If you live ANYWHERE in the Southern California area, it is well worth the trip.
This is a superstore of fabrics. They have every kind of fabric print and the material selection is huge, including last season’s designer fabrics. The prices are very reasonable and affordable, ranging from $1.98 for flatfolds up to $8.95 for new arrivals and popular prints.
Below, racks and racks of flatfolds … all at $1.98. But you are on your own here if you find something you want in the middle of the stack … and best to forget it if it’s at the bottom!
This store is always busy and they cut and sell TONS of yards of fabric every week. Sometimes there’ll be 6-7 cuttters … that’s all they do: cut fabric … rack ‘em and stack ‘em! One customer right after the other. I usually spend at least a couple of hours when I visit; and I’ve met some really neat folks … lots of quilters! They’ve been around for over 20 years and I hope they continue for another 20!
The days are getting longer, and daylight savings time is two weeks away … does that mean Spring is almost here? Still raining and snowing in some parts of the country … but I see the light at the end of the tunnel!
