Text Fabric Problem and Winner of eBook

A while back, I confessed to having a text fabric problem. 



Initially, I didn't have a plan, but knew I wanted to make a quilt using lots of low-volume text prints with little scraps of color.  Here's a little preview of what I'm working on.

 
I'm also working on a tutorial to share with you later this week in case
you want to sew along with me.  Hope you'll join me!

In the meantime, we have a winner of the Celebrate Christmas with That Patchwork Place eBook. 


Congratulations, Jennifer!  I know you'll have fun with this book!
 
Thank you to everyone who played along.  Hope you all have a great week!

Congrats to your winner! I love text fabric and a whole quilt of text and POLKA DOTS will be awesome. Can't wait to see what you're up to.

Definitely having stash envy for your text fabrics! Would love to hear more about how/where you acquired your fabrics!

Oh my goodness Kim! You have the most amazing text fabric collection!!!! I wish I had that problem!

Jennifer said...

Oh my gosh, I think that's me! Thanks so much! I look forward to seeing your project with all the text fabric - I love them too, but don't have anything close to you collection :)

You've been busy too! Love it so far.

I seem to have a thing for text fabric too. I really didn't notice it till I got home and started putting my fabric away after several trips and noticed that I had a thing for words and numbers. It makes great low value fabric. Not sure how I'm going to use it.

In my book, hoarding of text fabrics could NEVER be a problem! They're beautiful, and your little sneak peek looks fantastic!!!

I THOUGHT I had a problem! No way I can come close to your collection. And they are all so pretty. I was thinking I'd have to print my own, but obviously there are lots of choices out there. I guess I have to visit a few LQS's and find some of yours.

I'll be checking out your tutorial, I love these fabrics. I have a small pile, maybe it will be enough to start.

I also love text fabrics and have been saving them. Perhaps your quilt will inspire me!
