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......)
