This all started while I was over at Stitched in Color and Rachel so non-chalantly mentioned that if your stash was needing solids, than the Baby Bottled Rainbow Bundle at Marmalad Fabrics was just the fix. Turns out, I *was* in desperate need of some solids, so I popped on over and immediately saw the bundle had to be mine. This bundle of Kona Solids was put together for this shop on Rachel's suggestion, and there are two versions. I have never gotten to use Kona Solids but I always love the richness of the colors and have heard great things, so I was pretty pumped about this. While I was there, I hit up the sale section and grabbed a couple of fat quarters and headed to check out. As I was looking at shipping costs, I realized that I could either pay $10 for shipping, or spend $10 more to reach the free shipping threshold...so yeah that's kind of a no brainer! It took me forever to narrow down my selections, and man was it a hard choice. I almost wound up with about twice as much as I got, but I had to cut myself off and I LOVE the choices I made.
Kona Baby Bottled Rainbow Bundle (they came labeled with the color name on it...isn't that great??)
Ty Pennington's Impression-Water Flowers, Khristian A. Howell's Theory-Sierra Leaf and Forrest Wheels
Joel Dewberry's Aviary 2- Sparrows, Ty Pennington's Impressions-Kimono Spice, Foliage and Lace
I had no idea that Ty Pennington actually had a line of fabric out, and actually I didn't even know it was his when I ordered and just noticed as I was organizing my photos, but bravo, Ty! I'm diggin it. I love that even though these are from 3 separate lines, I can mix and match them together. I'm dying to cut into them, but they're being saved for the e-course that I signed up to take which is the Curves Class taught by none other than Rachel at Stitched in Color (yeah, I've gotten into a lot of trouble over at her blog lately...but I adore her so it's okay!)
So, do you shop for fabric online, or do you prefer to see it in person first? And where are your favorite online places to shop for fabric?
