FABRIC JUNKIE

So we all know that Fabric Junkies don't like to hit up the stash alone.....

so we try to entice others to join us.....


just try it....

just this once...

it won't hurt...

well.....my friend Krista tried it just once. You have seen some of her creations in the past. (I didn't even have to entice her with free fabric...HA!)

Here are a few more



Don't you just love the Samoan fabrics...oh yes.....it feels good too....
She blames me for her addiction....

I have broad shouders....(my husband says that her husband is going to stop her from playing with me.....bad influence....you should see the fabric she has collected...ummmm ummmmmm good).


This next one is a kalidascope quilt, she borrowed my ruler and just went to town. Now mind you....she just started this probably Friday...she is one fast sower.



If these quilts don't spark creativity, I don't know what will...she is amazing and an amazing friend as well.

Oh....by the way free jelly roll pattern find out how you can get it here!

  16. Barb, you are such a good friend to get a friend hooked on fabric. Two friends can get in twice as much trouble when it comes to fabric. Her quilts are great.
