Danger Quilt Bloggers!

Okay, you know how this whole blogging thing is supposed to be free? And how a lot of us are pretty focused on a) finishing UFOs, b) busting stash and/or c) making items to sell?

I fell into the danger zone today! In my effort to email back the people who leave comments on my posts and to visit their blogs if they have one, I accidentally (that's the word I'm going to use when I explain it to DH) stumbled across the Fresh Squeezed Fabric shop at Etsy.

It is gorgeous! The Ginger Blossom line makes me grab my graph paper. I don't know what to do with it, but I want it. I want it all. Not in the spirit of using from my stash in any way whatsoever, but I want it.

In the interest of mental health, I think I'm going to allow myself a little bit of it. Denying myself completely would just make me resentful, and more likely to binge at some cheap fabric store later. Don't you agree? Now I just have to define "a little bit" and figure out which ones I can't live without.

Of course, that led me down the treacherous path of what else might be hiding on Etsy that just needed to come live at my house. I'm just warning you right now that you shouldn't have your credit cards anywhere near by while you are looking. You should have them put away somewhere - preferably with a flight of stairs in between - so you can think before you shop. It's really just too tempting.

Hope you find something that inspires you today!


  1. haha, I own a whole fat quarter stack of Ginger Blossom, have been trying to find something to do with it, I wish someone would hurry up and have a baby girl because it would make a great baby quilt. Also, I ordered fabric from fabricworm on etsy yesterday, she has great prices. VERY DANGEROUS! And just ask Melissa about her ebay fabric purchases :)

  2. Wanted to stop by and say thanks for your comment on my black discharge quilt - thanks! Love your blog post headline on this one - perhaps I'm showing my age that I get the cultural reference on this one...


Thanks for joining the conversation!
