Marketing Works On Me

Today I ran into my LQS, The Quilt Block to pick up one thing and came home with 6 things!

I saw these fabrics the other day and needed to run so I didn't have a chance to get them. They were on my mind all week long!
They are from a collection called Merry Stitches by BLEND. You could use them in a Christmas quilt but they would also work in a regular quilt.

I bought the embroidery needles now I got the regular sewing needles. Once again I love the packaging!

This was my original purchase. I ordered the pattern through the shop. The packaging is great. A fan deck that you can't lose. I am still trying to decide if I want to do it in solids, maybe even use my hand dyes or prints.
They still have some at the store if you are interested.

Tonight is book club. We will be discussing Sisterland. Has anyone read it?



  1. I think those fabrics are great , and if you thought about them for a week then they belong in your stash. I did the same thing....dropped my machine off for repair and took home a few fat quarters when I picked it up.

  2. Ooooh, cool fabrics! Yes, sounds they like deserve to come home with you. I almost never argue with fabric when it says "take me home"! hee hee! Cute packaging for the needles! And that fan of Moda Modern Blocks - what a clever idea! And I think they'd look good in all kinds of fabrics.

  3. Great purchases. Love the fabric.

  4. Next blog nuance: you've been dropped from my Bloglovin' feed. Did you prune me? Looking forward to seeing what comes from these purchases.

  5. Don't you just love a good day at the quilt store? I am very interested in the Moda Fan Deck--that looks like fun!

  6. I want the gray fabric...and the green..oh, and all the colors of that line! I read Sisterland. Loved it. Can't remember it-- in one eye and out the other. Just know that it was a good read.

  7. New fabbies,,,yumm. Love that fan deck. Had a chance to see it last week, Figured I would have time to check it out more later. Not happening, at least not for a long time. Oh well saves me $$$

  8. I saw those needles at the Hershey show and loved the packaging too! nice blendy fabrics and the block set look very fun.
    did you like Sisterland? I'm always looking for a good read.


I love to read your comments, they make my day!
