I fell in love with Heather Bailey‘s Freshcut line the moment I saw it. The patterns are feminine and classic…but with a modern twist. Perfect! Sadly, the local shops I frequent don’t carry the line and I, for the most part, had to admire from afar. I did pick up some charm packs on eBay and I used some in my 2nd bagsket. That really just whetted my appetite for the fabric.

There were many times I filled an online shopping cart only to close the browser and walk away (look! I can exhibit self-control). I certainly don’t need more fabric right now. And how to choose which pieces to get? But finally…finally I had to give in to my inner stash-a-holic. I think the magic words “free shipping, no tax” sucked me in.

Although I’m not known for my restraint when it comes to craft supplies…this is a pretty big splurge, even for me.


Those would all be 1/2 yard pieces – the complete line in all three colorways. Bliss.

    Oh my, I am salvitating at the idea of buying a complete line of a favorite fabric. I think this splurge was worth it. You love it and you will use it. Have fun!

    Oh, you lucky, lucky woman. I often do the same thing — fill my online cart and then talk myself out of the purchase. Especially baby clothes!

    Gorgeous choices! I have mastered the art of filling up shopping carts and finally closing it after hours of pondering…

    …but seriously, where did you buy those… free shipping you say?? 😉

    Oh, my! What are your plans for these beauties?

    I third the fill-up-the-cart-and-walk-away method of shopping…
