Fabric Fast – #fail

In this post from February 8th, I made the following statement –

After all that splurging I am planning on taking a buying break. Let’s see if I can fabric fast until the end of the month.

That ‘break’ did not last very long. I was home sick on the 13th with IPad in hand and went on a search for some more fabric for the backing of the Virtual Quilting Bee quilt. I had laid it out and did not have enough and a pieced back wasn’t going to work for this project. It is Belly Laugh Turquoise from the Ticklish line by Me & My Sister designs and it’s perfect for the back of that quilt.

Then through #thegreatfabricdestash I found the perfect backing for my Floral Pop! quilt. And a few charm packs that I just had to have.

It’s Comma!! I just could not resist those sweet little squares. I blame Molli Sparkles for introducing me to that line. 🙂
Then, Craftsy decided to have a huge fabric sale. I was able to pick up a Mystery Fat quarter box for a little over $40! Fifty designer fat quarters for that price was a steal.

Here are some close ups of what that box contained:

I’m not even going to try and put in a fabric fast plan for March. That would be plain silly. I might be starting the month with a trip to a local quilt shop that I’ve not yet been to. That could be dangerous. 🙂
