I Can't Resist 40% Off

This post is part of an ongoing series of posts where I document my fabric stash purchases.
This year I am trying to keep track of my fabric intake in order to see how much I consume.  I'm not going to keep track of how much I spend, though, because then I might cry.

I'm trying to be good about my fabric purchases this year, so when JoAnn's has a 40% off sale I try to control myself. :)  I actually think I showed great restraint with this purchase.

pretty fabrics featuring a scandinavian motiff and geometric patterns in pink orange navy and yellow

The bird print on the left is yardage I purchased for the back of a quilt I am finishing up.  I've held back buying it for months, but couldn't shake the idea that it would be perfect for this one particular quilt.  The other pieces are stash builders and some new-to-me Denyse Schmidt pieces.  I think I bought 1/3 yard of each.   See?! Restraint, I tell you.

I love the bird fabric. It will be fun to be on the back of a quilt. M
