I think I have become a fabric snob. You see, I used to shop at JoAnn's pretty heavily for my quilting fabrics. I mean, there was not a week that went by, if JoAnn's had a good sale or coupon, I was checking out the fabric wall.
But in the past year or so, I have not found very much fabric at JoAnn's that has jumped into my shopping cart. Is it me, or does their fabric seem to be of lesser quality? And when they started pricing their fabric at $8 and $9 a yard, I figured that if I was going to pay those prices for fabric, I might as well swing over to the local quilt shop and try to keep them in business ;-)
So this weekend, one of my favorite quilt shops was having a 30% off sale. In the quest to accommodate my guests, I thought I would work up a couple of lap quilts for the guest room. The colors are a range of greens and creams with some blue.
I have also been looking for a light creamy yellow for a blue and yellow quilt that is in the works. No light creamy yellow at the quilt store. But I did find a very good Kona Cloth match at JoAnn's that will work great with this quilt.
So maybe checking in at JoAnn's is not such a bad thing after all :-D
