I love this sentiment. Now if I just had the time. Hopefully, that will open up with the new studio organization. I'm preparing for the event, in any case.

This was the quilt plate from Quilts and Quilts in Branson MO. There are two stores in Branson on the Row By Row Experience. While Bob and I were on vacation a couple of weeks ago, I made this one of my 'must stop' places. I loved the selection and could have wandered longer than I did had it not been we wanted out of town ahead of a nasty thunder storm.

The first thing I ask about was the guitar fabric like I'd found a small quantity of in Llano Texas. She had some as well as a couple other fabrics that coordinated well.

the one on the left is hard to see but is a sheet music print then the other is just an all over design that matches.

Then I found Tim Holtz fabric! I thought I'd died and gone to heaven. I bought a quarter yard of every print she had... well except for one. the bluish colored 'Correspondence' fabric will fit in my studio perfectly so I bought three yards plus this quarter.

I bough t (from left to right: Cigar Box, Documentation, Mercantile, Rulers, Travel Labels and Correspondence.

Notice tht postage print has a bit of blue and brown and I think I can even make an undertone appear peach. Wish I could have afforded to buy enough for the Valances in here but I'll turn it into something :-)

I also fell in love with this floral that almost has a postage stamp look with the way the lace border around each blog is presented. I'm thinking this will be lovely cut apart and applied to a fabric journal I want to do.

Lastly, I found a couple of things I can use as I begin organizing the office. I'll show them to you know then as I put the studio together, I'll show you how I use them.

That fabric organizer is perfect size for quarter yard pieces. And those tags... they are a swatch ring! 


  1. Pretty fabrics! I can't wait to see what you make.

  2. You are so organized! Unbelievable, for someone with her hands in so many pies! Now quilting!

  3. Wow! I did not know Tim Holtz fabric existed. That is so cool!!! Nice haul :-)

  4. I am with Brenda I had no Idea TH had fabric . thank s for sharing your haul.
