This past week when I was in Birmingham with my daughter, I just had to search out fabric stores! I found this little knit and quilt shop called In The Making that was wonderful! Fat quarters have become my go-to mementos for trips. Who needs another refrigerator magnet?!
These fabrics are batiks from Malka Dubrawski and Marcia Derse. The former designer I have known of and have her book on dying. (Color Your Cloth, at Amazon here. Great book for dyers.) Marcia Derse I hadn’t heard of and she has some neat stuff as well!
I also found a Hancock Fabrics, which was nice since we don’t have one close to me. It was a lot like Joann. But they did have some nice feeling fabrics and all quilting cottons were 40% off, so I did help myself to a few.
And here I am with my daughter : ) We had a wonderful week and she had lots of interviews, which was our reason for being there.
