How could I resist?

Yes, I had put myself on a moratorium on buying new fabric.

And Yes, I had purposed to use up the fabric in my stash.

And YES, my goal this year was to finish the UFO's that are still hanging in my closet!

BUT...
how can one resist, when the sale price says 70% off, PLUS an additional 20%!

I've made several quilts for children, and my pink stash was sorely lacking. When I spied these  beauties at JoAnn's,


at that amazing discount price (less than $2.00 a yard), all my restraints gave way.  Although these prints were not in the Easter selection...


...they were still on sale. It became apparently clear that this collection of fabric would make perfect quilts for a friend's two little girls.

Progress will be forthcoming :-)

Happy Quilting!

Well, obviously, you can't resist. That would be just *crazy*. I'm surprised you didn't use that money you saved to buy more. In fact, if you bought enough fabric you'd save so much money they'd have to open up the cash registers and start giving you money back.

I too am swooning at the sight of such pretty fabrics. I heartedly support your purchase! Such lovely bloom in your area; we are warming but still grey I am afraid. Soon though.

Who could resist. I was spoiled living in San Antonio where JoAnn's was just a few minutes away....I long for those days.

Oh dear, I am envious of the fabric bargain! And it's pretty on top of the bargain price. 8-))
