Who can Resist Moda Fabrics??

Not me!
There was plenty more that I would have liked to purchase but I just couldn't.
I was chatting with the lady that owns the shop and told her that I really shouldn't buy any more at all until I have used up all the fabrics that I have at home but she said that is not what we (fabric lovers, quilters, etc.) are supposed to do.
So you see, she kind of gave me the A ok to buy.. buy.. buy.
The good thing is that I brought both pieces home and actually used them instead of placing them in my fabric stash.
I made pillowcases for a few pillows that we use on the couches.

The above photo is a Moda fabric called At Walden Pond. The colors in this one match my couches perfectly. I keep big fluffy bed pillows on my couch or nearby for those times when you want to take a nap while watching some tv. You know, you gotta be comfy!
The other fabric which I can not even remember the name fits in with the decor in my living room. I love anything related to horses, country living, western and so forth so I grabbed a few mini pillows at Walmart and made pillowcases out of this fabric.
Nothing fancy.

Just a simple slip on case that can be easily removed to wash.
Now, since I used up those two fabrics does it mean that I can go and buy a few more favorites???
Maybe I should wait until I travel to Sugar Creek and allow myself to get lost in the beauty of their lil' quilt shops.

The Walden Pond fabric would go very well in my living room. I like the little travel pillows. I just wish I knew how to sew and had a sewing machine....

Hope you have a great day!☼
