Purples, purples and more purples!

March 13, 2010

Well…..I should have gone hiking today and saved myself from spending tooooo much money at the Patchwork Place Quilt Shop.

I had a 40% off coupon that I was saving to use for ‘just the right buy’ and I used it today to buy a French Braid’s quilt kit. The kit included the book and enough purple fabrics to make a queen size quilt. I’ve been stewing for a few months about whether to spend or not spend the money on this kit and today…I caved in to my desire!

I took my purchase out to the car and promptly went right back into the store to use my 25% discount on my entire purchase today for the grand opening sale. So….I found purple batiks that I know will make the most beautiful jacket. I bought 7 and 3/4 yards of the batiks to make a jacket that has squares separated by a darker purple strip. The sleeves will be the purple fabric with the suns….oh, I just need to get a photo of the fabric because it’s too hard to truely describe the fabrics!
