So here's the fabric stash. The previous owner of our house was an avid knitter and had this island with baskets installed to hold all of her knitting supplies. The top row and middle right row hold the cotton prints. At various times they are more or less arranged by color palette. Most of this fabric was purchased from various Etsy sellers (you can see some of my favorites by going to my dormant Etsy shop and looking at my Favorites), one or two local quilt shops, my all-time favorite fabric store in Phoenix, J. Caroline Creative and the Fat Quarter Shop. I have been on a fabric-buying moratorium since late 2008, so you probably aren't seeing any new prints in there! Bottom left holds a small selection of home decor fabrics for projects that have been envisioned but not executed. Bottom right holds fabric scraps. So here's a quick tip for finding new fabrics. When you are going out of town and will have a few minutes to kill, find a few fabric shops beforehand to visit. To do this, go to the website of one of the popular fabric designers, like Amy Butler or Joel Dewberry, and find out where they sell fabric in the town you are visiting.
See you tomorrow, and thanks for stopping by!
