Fabric Fantastic

While I was in Kansas I stopped in at what has to be one of my favorite fabric stores, Charlotte's Sew Natural. I allowed myself only two pieces of fabric, man was that a hard choice!
The first is a Hoffman "California", for the love of owls and will make a dress for my girl.
The other is a wild retro print by Urban Chiks for Moda. I may save this one for myself, a skirt perhaps. I don't particularly like sewing for myself for some reason but, this fabric is yummy.

Charlotte's Sew Natural is an amazing store, and Charlotte herself is an amazing woman. She remembers me everytime I come in even though I only visit every other year or so. This time she even remembered the pattern and fabric that I picked up last time. They have great kits for those of the quilting passion and a well thought out selection of fabrics. I haven't shopped the online store yet, no doubt it's just a matter of time. If you are in the market for fabric and great service you should check them out.

Such lovely fabrics! I think the second one would be wonderful for making one of these kaleidoscope quilts that I recently bought a book about. I love the owls too. I sometimes go to Kansas City but I'm not sure where that is compared to the shop. I'll have to look it up.

Kansas City is about two hours away from Newton, KS where the shop is, and about 45 min. from Witchita. It's a relatively small town with a pretty cool Main St.
