Where did you find the Make Life fabric 30% off?

Vicky said...

I'll say you had a productive week! Love your embroidery blocks. I need to get going on mine. You're hanging in there nicely. The way you pump things out, you'll stay in the zone for the whole year!

Barb said...

You have been one busy your projects and fabrics....

Unknown said...

See how healthy a little spring stash cleaning can be? Wow.

Suburban Stitcher said...

you always have to look at the've used 2/3 of what you've purchased...and in my book that's amazing!

Christine said...

Oh Lordy! 300 yards?! Crazy business. Must be why I live vicariously through your stash :) Christine

Mary said...

Wow, 200 yards?!?! You're a machine! This week I'm cutting into my Authentic stash and attempting to make a quilt that my husband will like. It's just not easy trying to make a man-friendly quilt, but at least I'll be busting some yards :-) (P.S. - I'm SOOOO jealous of your new Make Life yardage! 30% off?!?! I wouldn't be able to resist either.)

Tracey Jacobsen said...

Another inquiring mind wants to know where you found that 30% off!

Beautiful fabric. :)

Thimbleanna said...

Looks like you're good and busy Julie! And ooohhh, the Big Vera Bradley sale is almost here -- maybe you need to come for a visit LOL!!!

Natalia from Piece N Quilt said...

WOW! You have been really busy! Thanks for the shout out.

Renegade Quilter said...

I must confess I ordered 36yds of Make Life - its my fav right now and already have a bunch of precuts. I didn't find as good of deal as you but I got a deal on it none the less.

Heather said...

I’m going to have to agree with you, you are using your fabric, so don’t get feeling all guilty about buying more. At least that is what I tell myself! Your projects look like fun :)
