A little New York fabric

Hi Everyone - Just thought I'd show you my New York fabric purchases.  I may have to bring an extra suitcase next time to take advantage of the great prices!


I saw these rhinestone initials and thought they would be a perfect way to sign my "Victorian Gothic" quilt currently in the works...sometimes you just need a little bling, right?

A few little extras I picked up at the notions store.

City Quilter creates their own New York city fabric.  I picked up some subway map fabric and a night scape.

Thought the postcards and city landmarks fabric would also work together.  The quilt store also has a quilt gallery where they display art quilts.  If you do travel to New York and plan on visiting the store, don't forget to take a look at the quilts on display in the gallery.

I took one look at this wild fruit fabric and thought to myself...Carmen Miranda!  It made me laugh, so I had to buy some.  Managed to find a few fabrics to go with it.

Couldn't resist the retro cowboys and cowgirls on the right and the purses will be perfect for an I Spy quilt...someday.

Loved the fresh look of the flowers and the classic look of the turquoise fabric behind it.

I only bought two yards of this Anna Griffin fabric and when I returned two days later, it was all gone.

I am trying to add brighter colours to my fabric stash...brights on a dark background count, right?

Thought this would be perfect for a baby quilt.

This was too much fun to pass up.

This is all they had left of the Laurel Burch wonder if went so quickly, the colours are incredible.
