|My Son's New Quilt|
Well, after making his quilt, I couldn't help but make some nice piles of some of my other stash for two quilts for a good friend's new step daughters. One loves pink and purple - she's got good taste I say.
And the other one likes greens and blues. Also super pretty. Well, I happen to have some good prints in those colors as well. Seriously can't wait to play with these. While I had all this Echino on the brain, a friend from Sewing Summit, amazingly talented Nydia from the ADD Crafter posted a pic of Echino's blue cameras, a print that until recently I could not find for sale ANYWHERE. She was so kind enough to send me a piece of her precious stack. Love her. When I had it in hand, I just had to have more. So I hit the internet, HARD. And found LOTS of hard to find out of print goodies, and some at amazing prices.
So, I may have ordered a bunch from many different places, cause the deals were too good to pass up, and I need to stock up since I will be in Nicaragua for three months this summer and need to pre-order my supplies, and Echino is MY FAVORITE. Since I am so nice, and have been called an enabler, I will share my deal secrets with you. BOTH the pink glasses and blue cameras are $14.41 a yard (yes, this is true) at Humble Beginnings. The yellow/green sunglasses are here at Quilted Threads for $17.95 a yard (they also have the glasses in brown).
Fancy any of these Kokka prints, including the pink Decoro deer and Melody Miller Typewriter in blue at, wait for it, $9.74 a yard, then go to Fabric Robot.
Want some black scooters, or other older Echino Prints for $11-13 a yard, then go to Tommorow's Quilts.
