Autumn Fabric


Well after using up all my Autumn stash and then some, I had to replace some of it since I just love these colors.
Kim at the Fat Quarter she was having 1/2 off all Halloween fabrics and free shipping on $50.00 orders that I had to order all these fabulous fabrics. I ordered several yards of orange and green and 2 layer cakes. I wanted to share this photo before it all goes to the wash room. It looks so pretty though.
I always wash my fabrics before putting them in the sewing room so they are ready to use whenever the inspiration guides me.I would hate to be inspired to make something and then have to wait until all my fabric is clean. Read what Becky and Linda from Piece O Cake have to say on their blog about fabric washing. After reading that story, I am glad I wash it first.

Looks yummi! I always wash first too, but I am always unsure... Glad to hear you wash your fabrics too, that makes me much more confident, that I am doing the right thing!

I love the oranges! I should buy more fall colors.

I wash all my fabrics before using them except for things pre-cut like charm packs. They would unravel and you'd have less than
5" to work with. Do you wash your jelly rolls and layer cakes too?

Love the orange. I don't have enough orange here!
Good idea to wash it all first before putting it away. Then you don't have to guess.."Did I already wash this?"
