New fabric -- a first!

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!

DH took these pix for me while I shopped. The top pic is a portion of the public area and the bottom pic is the warehouse area.  Maybe this spring I will have some time to browse.

  1. I love his fabric too, and have often debated buying some but struggle with what to do with them. I love the vibrant colours. Look foward to seeing your completed projects.
