Congratulations to each of you!

A blog post isn't right without photos, so here are pics of fabrics I bought yesterday. The first bundle is half-yard cuts of a dozen prints in the newish Aunt Edna line from DS Collection (Denyse Schmidt) sold at Jo-Ann Fabrics. I have six each of two colorways: "Cherry" and "Far Meadow." But they sure look nice all together. According to Red Pepper Quilts, this line will arrive in Australia's Spotlight stores in May.
The close-to-me Jo-Ann's didn't have all the Aunt Edna prints, so to get them I went to the grand opening of a new Jo-Ann's on the north side of Des Moines. I picked up a few other not-on-sale items, so I managed to use three 50 percent off items coupons, a 25 percent off the total purchase coupon, and the $10 gift card I received for being one the first 100 customers! I made out like a bandit! FYI: Aunt Edna regularly sells for $12.99/yard.

It's shop hop weekend at area quilt shops. That means 15 percent off fabric. I found these two Rendezvous pieces at the only area quilt shop that carries Anthology. Can't you picture the pretty Easter skirt I'll be wearing? 

And this fabric? Well it's just so appealing. Retro. Gray. Chartreuse. Wine-y. A few of my favorite things.

I hope you're having a happy sew-y weekend. Linda


  1. Hooooray!!! Thank you Linda! And congrats to the other winners too!

  2. Thank you for the will be fun to pick a pattern How fun that you got some Aunt Edna with all of your coupons. Personally, I think the JoAnn Etc. is capitalizing on the trendiness of the DS fabrics to be selling them several dollars higher than a LQS for better quality DS in the US. I sure won't buy it w/o a coupon either.

  3. Pretty fabric finds! I got to go check out the new store yesterday. It was quite fun!

  4. Good shopping Linda, think of all the money that you saved!

  5. Congrats to the winners.
    I am going to have to see our if Joann's has those fabrics.

  6. I'm going to hunt down some of that wine-y fabric!
