It's not the addition of new fabric that's a first. It's the designer. Below are my first ever cuts of Kaffe Fassett fabric. I don't know when any more Fassett will make it's way into my stash as his designs generally aren't my style, but I love these.
These are from the Liberty of London reproductions that I saw at Spring Market. Actually, I only remember the red ("Rajah Red") but found the brown while looking for the red at Hancock's of Paducah on our way to the in-laws before Christmas. I plan to make tulip purses from these cuts and share a bit of the red with a friend.
Oh - I forgot about the trip to Hancock's of Paducah. I was driving when we hit Paducah and I warned my DH that I wanted to stop - just a quickie. It is set up quite nicely - there is a gas station across the road from the store with a stoplight that leads directly into the parking lot - we had to stop.
The first time I was in the store was last spring during the quilt show. It is HUGE! I love batiks and there are more in this store than I knew were on the market!
