Fabric shopping

I needed to buy setting fabric for my Circa 2016 quilt, some binding and a skein of embroidery thread.  There are quilt shops in town, but we love the shop in Warracknabeal and they had a sale!  One day only, on my day off and a friend offered me a ride.
So pleased to get the setting fabric for my Circa 2016. The Temecula Quilt Co used a grey. But I am not a big fan of grey and this beige print looked great in the shop!  Del always let me pull bolts out and take over the shop, but we didn't need to with this print, she picked it in one!  
These might not all be strictly reproductions but they are leaf style prints, which I love.  I am not a fan of traditional floral prints.
The top print is the binding for a wall hanging.  The gold/mustard was just because.
I am positive the top pink is not a reproduction but I need some brighter colours in my Circa 2016.  I love the striped pink, but as you can see it is not particularly bright.  In fact I am not a big fan of pink, but all these fabrics "spoke" to me and I was in the mood to spend money!
Happy quilting Sue.

  1. Lovely selection of fabrics. I'm not a pink girl either but I have a surprising amount of it! Great way to spend a day off.

  2. Great retail therapy. I really like the pink stripe and those cheddars are going to fun to play with.

  3. Looks like a good shopping day, Sue!
    I'm not a big grey user, ether. Think I have next to zero in my stash. I like the lacy looking print you chose instead.
    I do love that gold/mustard and I do have some of that!
    I also don't gravitate toward pinks, but I love that stripe and think I have some of it, too. We would have fun shopping together. : )
