Forty five? What is that? Well it is not my age, I can tell you that.
Forty five is the amount of yards of fabric I have bought in the last two weeks!!!! OMG!!!! Actually, I forgot about the 3 metres and the odd fat quarters that I bought at the quilt show and the scrap pack at Prints Charming, but we will leave it at 45 - it doesnt need to sound any worse.
I have said many times before - it is a disease, a disease. I can't help it. My first, of how many packages arrived today - it contains 9 yards of Riley Blake All Star 2. It is so lovely. There are two more prints in orange from the collection - they are part of the other 36 yards that are still to arrive.
What else is coming? Well there is 9 yards of Pooches and Pickups and there is 26 yards of Kona Cotton Solids.
Now there is a small reason that I bought the majority of the fabric - yes I know it is pretty and will look so good in my stash, but I got an email from Hancocks of Paducah and they were offering FREE SHIPPING. So 26 yards later, and a few notions - I saved $63.30 in shipping and got Kona Cotton for only $4.78 a yard. Bargain all around!!!

I have been seeing red for the last couple of weeks.
Lots of red in the form of 180 half square triangles.
I love this quilt, however, maybe not a good one where you don't have the fabrics already in your stash. There is over 30 different prints here, and apart from a few that I had, I bought them all - so 30 fat quarters, not cheap, but I think it is worth it (not sure Mat would agree)
Mat's on night shift this week, so I am hoping to get this one finished.
