Y'all. I'm obsessed with text prints. I know I've said it before, but it was worth mentioning again...although probably not necessary after you see my latest haul.
Clockwise: Ikea Britten Nummer Fabric; Alison Glass Text in Charcoal from the Sun Print Text Collection; Michele D'Amore for Bernatex Big Words in White on White; Carolyn Friedlander Scribble Notes in Black from the Architextures Collection.
Here is a close up of the white-on-white so you can see the text (please excuse the pitiful photo quality, but it was the best I could do and still get the text to show up):
You may remember from last week that I ordered 6 additional yards of the Architextures print after the one yard cut I ordered arrived. Well, I've don it again. I managed to grab the last three yards of the Britten Nummer print while I was at the IKEA in Charlotte last week. I swear I almost got into a fight over this fabric. Some woman stood their and glowered at me while I measured it and then followed me around for awhile...not sure if she thought I would change my mind or if she was planning an attack. Sorry Lady! I had to get it while I could since IKEA refuses to sell fabric on line, won't let you order it over the phone or hold it for you even for a couple of hours. (There may or may not be three more yards on the way from Westwood Acres, I bought out Amanda's supply too!)
I do have a plan for all this texty stuff, I promise. I have a bunch of Comma scraps left over from this quilt that I made for my Aunt last year. I decided that Hubs and I need something similar for our house too. However, my low-volume stash was in pretty dire straits. The Ikea fabric will be the back and the binding will be the Architextures print. I think it will make a perfect binding, so I bought enough for several quilts.
