    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.
    [img]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v6...m/d1b78d6d.jpg[/img]

    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:
    [img]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v6...m/856220ae.jpg[/img]

    And the two with the others....
    [img]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v6...m/f468953f.jpg[/img]

    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:
    [img]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v6...m/b0690236.jpg[/img]
    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:

    Or, at least ... you will in a few days, eh? LOL

    Wow! You have some beautiful fabric in your stash!! I love the flannels she chose! I also really like the pattern and the blues you chose to add to that marvelous stash you have going. The material for potholders is very cute!

    Lovely fabrics. You've got a lot of projects on the go. I like the McCalls quilt pattern.

    One of my favorite parts of quilting is buying the fabrics.....though it's not so good for the budget.
    Sometimes I really have to be stern with myself or I'd end up buying WAY,WAY more than I can afford.

    Barnbum...you have some lovely projects ahead of you-very nice choices. Thank-you for sharing.


    RANGER....loving to buy fabric....lol...I think thats how 3/4's of my projects get started, falling in love w/ the fabric.

    GaiGai..how fun that must be to have friend you can enjoy a craft with. Non of my friends are into any sort of craft let along quilting, they just don't get it when I get all excited over finding & falling in love w/ fabric.

    Sharon...the winters months are saved for sewing, I think thats why I love living where there are definant season chgs. If the sun is shining I can't resist i am out in the yd playing.

    Oh my gosh! I'm totally recognizing the green from you DD's quilt- used it on my DJ Christmas blocks....and a lot of the flannels...are in my bottom drawer because I'm scared...never worked with flannel before...

    AND I don't have any of your blues...but they are really nice looking...I'd have to see that 2nd one in person to be sure..but they all look great otherwise and will be fabulous in that pattern!

    I was outside all day today...rode all day...no quilting...but that will come on a rainy day!
