    I just felt like showing you. :wink:
    My daughter chose these from my stash for her next ragged flannel.

    My son's girl, Jenny, and I went shopping for her fabric today! This is a combination of some stash and what she found at the LQS--well kind of local.

    And this is a photo scanned form McCall's Quick Quilts magazine--Sept 2009 issue, of an applique I want to try. I wasn't going to do it anytime soon, but saw these the two coodinating fabrics at Joanne's yesterday, so grabbed them while they were there. Then, since Jenny and I were standing in a quilt shop today :D , I poked around for some blues to go with the two and found what's in the last picture. It's a challenge to match! There are so many gorgeous "white" and blues, but they're really cream and blue. Bummer. :? Someday I'll learn to just buy fabrics someone already said go together! :roll:

    The pattern from Quick Quilts:

    The first two--you can clearly see why they were a perfect start! :wink:

    And the two with the others....

    Plus, I'll be working on those bookmarks for students.
    And, I have potholders to make for a craft show...fabric in the middle here:

    And I only get to the sewing room on weekends.
    I'm in big trouble. :shock:

    I have a tilting stack of new fabric waiting to get rinsed--I'll start tomorrrow! (But , if it's nice I'll be outside......)

    The second from the left doesn't look right to me from the photo--but it looks good in person. :D

    ROFLMAO! I have several of those fabrics! What did I tell you about our similar (exceptionally good )tastes!!!


    My friend JoeAnn and I are scary that way. I can't tell you how many times we gone to each other and said "Oh, look at the great fabric I just bought" and then we both pulled out the exact same fabric. In fact when I threatened to come raid her stash recently, her reply was "Why bother? You have most of the same fabric already anyhow!" :lol: :lol: :lol:

    Looks like you have your work cut out for yourself!
    Or, at least ... you will in a few days, eh? LOL
