No time to sew? Buy fabric online!

My impending self-imposed fabric fast is approaching quickly. I have vowed not to buy any fabric in October, with the exception of my ongoing Kona Solids of the Month club from Sew Sisters.

But today is not in October. It is still glorious, buy fabric September. And I just did that (in moderation) when Pink Chalk had a sale on Labour Day weekend. I ordered two delicious prints that were going for a ridiculously cheap price. The package arrived today!

I love how Pink Chalk packages their fabric.
Inside were these two beauties:
One yard of Jamie Wood City Streets Scene in Blue

3 delicious yards of Rashida Coleman-Hale's Washi Squiggle in Grey
The City Streets will be in my friends' son's quilt (he is due in February) and the Washi print will be the backing to a quilt some day. They were both so inexpensive that I just had to indulge. Fellow quilters will understand.

Now if I could only find time to actually sew something...

  1. I happen to like the City Streets fabric myself ;o) I would love to see the finished product when you complete it. Thanks!

  2. That's really cute fabric and will make a great quilt for a little one. I found your link on Sew Many Ways Find a Friend Friday. Hope you'll come over and follow me!
