Garden Delights from In The Beginning

I really have no business buying fabric because I have more than enough to keep me occupied for the next few years (if not my lifetime, especially at my current rate of productivity).  But what quilter ever heeded that kind of voice in her head!  No, it is pretty easy for me to justify any fabric purchase. And when I saw the Garden Delight line from In The Beginning Fabrics, I was quivering with the must-have-its.

If you like the English Liberty fabrics, you will like the Garden Delights line!  If you've always wanted to make a quilt in rainbow colors using floral prints, you will love this line!

The line comprises 40 small floral prints in rainbow colors from red to violet, with cream and gray for some neutral balance.  I bought a jelly roll and a fat quarter set in the blue and green colors from  Stitchinpost has very good images as well as a project book.   Delightful, right? I  have a few vague ideas of what to make with my stash and am giving them some time to crystallize in my brain before I start.

My other recent purchase was the latest Quilt Sampler.  It was good for a couple of hours of browsing and a few items caught my eye, unfortunately samples of items displayed in the photos of the featured stores rather than the project featured in the magazine, so I will have to track them down.

  1. Well, you're certainly a bad influence! Thanks. I may need to have that fabric, too.

  2. I have the same problem with the Quilt Sampler. I just fall in love with something on display in the shops. Lots of eye candy for sure.
    Those fabrics are beautiful. I buy when I don't need it too- we are stimulating the economy. At least, its better than booze,cigarettes or drugs. Our drug of choice, I guess.

  3. Oh my do I know what you mean, Cathy! I've enough stash for 3 years worth of quilts!! I love it!

  4. Even though your work schedule infringes on your sewing time, it's nice to get new fabric and dream!

  5. Love that fabric, I'm very fussy when it comes to florals but these are beautiful. Liberty knows how to do florals!


I love hearing from you - thanks for taking the time to leave a message.
