jumping on the bandwagon

There has been a lot of blog-talk recently about the new Denyse Schmidt fabrics at Joanns. Of course I had to do my own research..... so I texted my sewing buddy, swung by & picked her up & we headed off to Joanns to see for ourselves what all the hoopla was about. Here is what we found.... Oh they really are lovely! & nice quality fabrics too. We opted to buy the blue/green coordinates (although I am tempted to go back & get the red ones too!). They are priced at $9.99 a yard, pricey for Joanns, but just right with a 50% off coupon. Joellen & I each bought 3 prints with our coupons, then we cut them in half & shared. Perfect! Now, what to make? They look very summery & vintagy to me, I am thinking a simple airy quilt top with white solid maybe? Stay tuned!

Cool! My Joann's doesn't have much of the line yet but I'm headed to a bigger one on Friday.

I got sucked in over the weekend... Of course, then, I was scared that if I didn't get them all, I would be mad, later. So, I made multiple trips to multiple JoAnn's with different coupons, each time... The ones you are showing are my favorites, though.

Beautiful fabrics, very springy! I knew it was Joellen you picked up - glad y'all had a nice time at JoAnns!
