    I saw this topic listed

    http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-161381-1.htm

    and thought I would share what I got there today. I have some beautiful fall fabrics, but the colors can be a challenge, especially when you want sashings or borders that will blend well.

    So.....on one of the flat fold isles I came across these solid leaf prints that were awesome, and at $2.49/yd, how can one resist. So I just grabbed 3 flat folds in the colors that matched my fabrics and purchased all on each fold - a little over 15 yards. I'm pretty excited!

    Here's the fabrics I had to work with

    Here's the 3 colors I found that match beautifully

    Oh love those 3 matching fabrics! I might have to call a halt to my 'no buy' policy and make a trip to M&L after all... I wouldn't make the 1 hr trip by myself but dh goes to Anaheim a couple times a month and I could hitch a ride with him.

    They had every fall color under the rainbow of that fabric, light and dark, blues, plums, browns, greens, really good selection.

    Lalaland, are you trying to tempt me even more? I'm really gonna have to see when dh is headed that way again.

    Love your choices of fabrics. I really have fun at M &L fabrics. It's only about 30min from me so it can be rather dangerous for my pocket book.

    If you have never been, you are in for a treat. They have thousands of yards of fabrics. They have deeply discounted fabrics AND the normal high-priced but high-quality quilt shop lines. Be prepared to spend a lot of time looking!
