Fabric Love

I have to share some yummy fabric I got in the mail recently. On her blog Barbara Brackman has been showing her new line called Metropolitan Fair, by Moda. I fell head over heels for it and had to find some for myself. 
Then Judie Rothermel, who designs for Marcus, has a beautiful new line called Civil War Melodies, and I gasped when I saw it online. 

 You know how we all try and set up a pretty little vignette when we display something. According to Wikipedia, "a vignette is a short impressionistic scene that focuses on one moment or gives a trenchant impression about a character, idea, setting, or object". So here is my attempt. But now I have to look up "trenchant".


And here is a close up so you can get a better look at the wonderful fabric. Oh yum!


I have not purchased fabric for a really long time and so I didn't even feel guilty when I got it. No, in fact I felt so good that I decided I better clean my obscenely messy sewing room to justify feeling this good. Still cleaning...

I just love both sets of fabric lines! Your Vignette is quite lovely. I think I should work on this when I'm posting pics on my blog. I usually just snap a shot where things lie!! Not a photographer at all! ;)

I admired Metropolitan Fair forever, bought a little "candy" pack and just had to have more! I don't have CW Melodies though! Love your basket quilt - and you did a great job of setting up that vignette!

Wonderful fabrics! But I sure hope your back is ok! Head over heels is not always the best exercise program for women with our level of maturity issues!
