    my FabShopHop prize!

    A box filled with 20 yards of fabric arrived at my house yesterday! There are four five-yard pieces, all from a collection called Ahambra II. Wow! With such large pieces even the ones that aren't entirely my cup of tea will make excellent and beautiful backings. I am so excited!

    Congrats! I think they are beautiful fabrics.
    I don't want to brag but I can still fit into the earrings I wore in high school.

    I know - isn't that amazing?! It was one of the four "first prize" prizes.

    I do too, and my aqua/teal loving daughter is already planning how to get some of them for her projects.

    It was for May. I was notified at the beginning of this month, but they arrived yesterday.

    I won a second prize for May and I got the same fabric, only one yard a piece.

    What will you do with yours? Do any patterns spring to mind?

    Congratulations! It is nice to know someone who has actually won one of the big prizes. I've been doing the fabshophop so long that I remember when the shops didn't have hints on where to find the bunny. A small prize here and there and the joy of discovering new places to find fabric, and the quilt pattern, will keep me coming back all the time.
