It's Friday. Whooooooo hooooooo! Time for Favourite Things.
If you'd like to show off your Favourite Thing pop your link at the bottom of this post and be sure to try and visit the other people who linked to have a peek at their favourite things. I'll be scooting around checking out your blogs over the weekend from my parent's so be sure to link up. I don't want to miss anything!
I'm sure some of you will say"duh" when you read about my favourite thing this week. One of my favourite things is fabric. I finally spent every bit of my birthday cash this week. I'm busted. Tapped out. This is it for a while people.
I never thought I'd be one of those people that could spend hours looking at Fabric collections online, or eagerly await the release of new fabric.
I think we Fabric-o-philes look at a chunk of fabric and see approximately 100 possibilities. The thrill of what we might do with it is part of the obsession. Acquiring it and looking at it makes us happy. That why quilters have a fabric stash. So we can look at it, and dream about it and finally make something out of it. There's a challenge in taking a piece of fabric and turning it into something gorgeous. I bet the crochety and knitting people feel the same way about their wool.
Here's what I've learned about myself over the last year in relation to fabric. I'm an in your face quilter. If it's loud and bright I love it. This week's fabric purchases pretty much illustrate my point. All of these fabrics speak to me. I think we can safely say I'm a modern quilter.

I jumped on the Joel Dewberry Modern Meadow Bandwagon. Not really my "usual" fabrics but we'll see if I can make this work. I'm pretty sure I can make this look chaotic somehow.
More Moda Oz. I LOVE this stuff. This is destined to be a table runner.
Are you a fabric nut? What's your quilting style? What kind of fabric /craft thrills your heart?
