Yep, I have gone and bought fabric from Spotlight.
Now, I am not a fabric snob BUT I do love the feel of the better quality fabric and the fact that it doesn't have such an open weave (hence the price) and fray as much.
So, I had a moment to kill and went for a wander through Spotlight only to 'spot' a fabric, then another that went with it, then another! Oh, my!! What a dilemma! So, I got a co-ordinating homespun and had my four to make a lap quilt out of.
It was the birds I saw first, then the turquoise flowery one, then the other flowery leafy one. They actually feel like linen, so I guess that is a good thing.
One other good thing is that I am not afraid to cut it up because it didn't cost alot!
Sorry about the photos - late night snapping!
I have already started and I am making a crazy nine patch as the four will work perfectly.
My Mum is definately not a fabric snob. She made a beautiful eye-spy quilt for my first born (who is now 7) out of Spotlight fabric. Sure, the colours have faded a bit but it is still holding together and Max adores it to bits.
Are you a fabric snob and only purchase from quilting stores, or do you like any type of fabric as long as the print is beautiful and suits what you need??
