Gone off the deep end!

I was going to try and not buy much fabric this year, but I have already jumped off the deep end. I am going to make several minion quilts for birthday gifts this year so I needed to get a bit more fabric to add to what I already had. Here is what I already had which I had bought on sale for like five bucks a yard except for the minions on scooters which was gifted to me by my sister.

I hit another sale this week and picked up more at five bucks a yard. The shipping was very reasonable and it came fast! All the way from Texas to Ohio in two days! Fort Worth Fabric Studio did a lovely job of packaging the fabric and included a pen and some hot chocolate! It is a good thing the fabric was wrapped in plastic because the box sat on my stoop in the pouring rain.

Hancock's of Paducah had minion fabric for six bucks and I picked up a few more pieces plus several other pieces that were in their clearance sales. I went ahead and bought enough to qualify for free shipping. I will probably get that next week along with three more pieces I got on ebay. I think I now have plenty to work with and can't wait to start making minion quilts!

I did work on the log cabin top last evening. I was just too tired to finish it, but it is almost done.

I would love to get two more done this weekend. They need to be about 48" x 60".

Have a great weekend!

That is the way to collect enough Minion fabrics for your projects. I have purchased a few sale fabrics too for fill in. I think we all need that perk of "new" once in a while.

Of course you had to buy more to get free shipping!

The minions look like fun.
