    Oh don't you know it!!

    I was laying in bed last night looking at my new CT catalog, and my
    husband told me that it was unbecoming of me to be drooling that
    way.

    He calls magazine or catalog no matter how big or small it is that
    comes in the mail my "quilting porn" LOL. He is so funny at times.

    I WANT several yards of the Rhapsody of Red collection.

    I saw them too. I love them, but I told myself not to buy anymore until I've used up the last order. I'm trying to figure out how to fool myself.

    My friends and I call fabric .... Quilter's Crack! We have to touch all the fabric and there is no such thing as a quick "in & out" trip to the fabrc store!

    This is so funny! I just opened up the quilting board just to start a topic about the gorgeous red fabric in the new Connecting Threads catalog! I just LOVE each of those reds! I love all the Connecting Treads fabric, but those are extra gorgeous!

    I received mine as well and have a granddaughter who loves RED, so maybe an entire red quilt from CT might be in her future !LOL So pretty for sure

    Yeah, when I saw the cover of CT's new catalog I told my sister fabric manufacturers have got to stop making red and black fabric collections. She said, "Why? Those look pretty nice." Well, that's the problem! I have to get through my stash before buying more, right?

    I like some of them too. I am looking forward to what ever else they will be coming out with in the near future too.

    By the way, the reds that are in the email are NOT in the catalog! It's a whole different level of red. Now that I know how much everyone loves them, I may have to buy before they're all gone. I've never made a red quilt before, but hmmmmmmmmmmmm

    Joanne, what do you mean by a whole different level of red? I thought they were the same?!? Also, which one do you like best?

    I love "quilt porn". That really says it. What a great sense of humor your husband has.

    Same question! I just ordered the fat quarter asst. Loved the colors. Deep reds and not so orangey! I tried all day yesterday to order them and it never would take my order. I think their site was down or something.....but got it through today! I am like Grandma Lehr..I don't really like red but those are gorgeous! Can't wait for them to come. Also, ordered a beautiful blue collection from the American Quilting society ad. ummmm, maybe red, white and blue??
