A few weeks back I was instantly smitten with a quilt I saw by Sarah at Georgia Girl Quilts! Her plus sign quilt is absolute perfection. I loved everything about it, and I knew I wanted to make one for my husband. Since he’s a math teacher, a self-proclaimed nerd, and lover of all things written, I loved her mathy/text vibe. I had originally told him that I would make him a bookshelf quilt, but when I saw Sarah’s quilt I knew why I was dragging my heels on that one. It just wasn’t right.
So, here’s the text haul that I bought. I am definitely going to be buying more low-volume and text prints. They are amazing.
I can’t even begin to pick a favorite. So many things to love.
But, if I had to, it would be this one:
I die. This fabric.
When I saw this fabric I had to have it. My husband irons EVERYTHING. When we were dating I told him, “If you expect your wife to iron your clothes I’m not the woman. I will pay to dry clean them, but I will not iron anything.” True to my word I have never ironed anything I wear. I have never turned on his iron. In fact, the first time I had ironed anything since college was in January when I started quilting. I look wrinkled all the time. My husband is pressed and presentable all the time. I had to throw it in the mix.
To finish off the quilt, I bought the comma line which he loves. He was actually really excited by Sarah’s choices which made my life so.much.easier.
And to round out my shipping I bought these prints that I have been eying for a while…
What, they were on serious sale?
What have you been buying lately?
